Manchin Statement on the Failed Senate Attempt to Repeal the Affordable Care Act

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement on his vote against repealing the Affordable Care Act, which failed tonight in the Senate. 

“Tonight the Senate rejected the partisan approach to repealing the Affordable Care Act. As I have said before, the only way to fix what is wrong with the Affordable Care Act is to work together in a bipartisan way to improve the system for all Americans. We gave millions of our neighbors the greatest wealth in healthcare and now we need to educate them on how to use it responsibly and efficiently. I remain committed to working with all of my colleagues - Democrats and Republicans - to ensure all West Virginians and Americans have accessible and affordable healthcare.”
