U.S. Representative Mike Coffman offered the following statement in response to Speakers Ryan withdraw of the American Health Care Act:
"Real people are suffering because the Affordable Care Act is not working. Republicans promised to repeal and replace Obamacare. There are legitimate differences of opinion in our Conference about how we accomplish that, but we need to bridge them and get this job done. The House is one step in the process, and the Speaker's framework is the beginning of a solution. We need to get a bill to the Senate, refine it, and finish our work. History will judge the party harshly if we don't keep our word to repeal and replace the Obamacare disaster."
