Washington Examiner: Democrat Lloyd Doggett warns Brady against scheduling Obamacare repeal markup next week

“A top Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee warned Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, against marking up any Obamacare-related legislation without giving committee members and the public ample time to read it first.

“Any attempt to force a vote on a bill that strips healthcare from millions of Americans without transparent discussion or even a cost estimate represents a total miscarriage of justice,” Texas Rep. Lloyd Doggett wrote Brady in a letter made public Friday. “Do not jam this bill down Americans’ throats. Robust and transparent deliberation is crucial, especially when the lives and well-being of so many American families are at stake—without it, democracy will crumble.”

Doggett was responding to rumors that the panel —which has partial jurisdiction over reconfiguring how Americans receive health insurance—will begin marking up a bill next week. However, Brady has neither introduced a bill nor scheduled a session for considering it.” Read full article here.

Thank you, for the encouragement and support, especially throughout these recent weeks. The low turnout does signal how much work remains to ensure Democratic victories in the General Election in November.

There are no unimportant elections and no unimportant races. From the courthouse to the statehouse to the Congress, I will be working for Democratic victories.
