Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Kennedy III released the following statement in response to the Senate’s most recent version of TrumpCare. 

“A health care system that segregates the sick and suffering ignores the most basic human truth that none of us are invincible. We cannot predict when it will be our parent diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, our child with autism, or our spouse with cancer. So we fortify a system strong enough to catch any one of us when we fall to our knees. A great nation would not only shoulder this responsibility, it would be proud to do so. TrumpCare runs from it, placing that burden on our families at their most vulnerable moment and making our country small and weak.”

Currently serving his third term, Congressman Kennedy is a member of the House Energy & Commerce Committee which shares jurisdiction over health care reform. He has been a vocal opponent of TrumpCare, with a particular focus on mental health care and Medicaid.
