In Healthcare, States On

I’ve decided Walden isn’t so nice after all. Sorry, Greg. The amusing announcer guy voice won’t cut it now. But maybe he can use that funny voice to cheer up someone whose family member died because he helped cut their insurance. Or maybe they’ve got cancer, or a terrible congenital heart defect, and they’re just, well, sorry. Use the voice. I’m sure they’ll find it amusing.

An angry, overflow crowd shouted Rep. Greg Walden down Wednesday at his first town hall since the failed Republican attempt to overhaul health care. More than once, he asked the crowd to give him a chance. “Let’s do this the Oregon way, let’s be respectful.” he said. “You’re starting to sound like Congress.” Walden closely supported Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, primary sponsor of the bill, even though more than a third of constituents in the Second District are recipients of Medicaid, the federal health care program for the poor.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River), Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, released the following statement on the passage of the American Health Care Act:

“For seven years, our constituents, patients, friends, and family, have suffered under a one-size-fits-all law that is collapsing under its own weight,”  said Walden. “The American Health Care Act will put patients, families, and their doctors first.  It will protect those with pre-existing conditions and provides states with the flexibility they need to help meet the unique needs of their citizens.  Simply put, the American people deserve better than what they received under Obamacare and the American Health Care Act delivers on our commitment to rebuild our health insurance markets and provide relief to the American people. We want to thank President Trump, Vice President Pence, and our colleagues in the House who have worked so hard to get this bill over the finish line today. There’s more work to be done, and we know we are up to the task.”
