Dem-NPL statement on attempts to “resurrect” Republican health care repeal

“Don’t Stop Calling.” 

(BISMARCK, ND) – Responding to reports that Republican Senators are facing pressure from party leaders to resurrect their efforts to rip health care away from tens of thousands of North Dakotans, Democratic-NPL party chairwoman Kylie Oversen issued the following statement: 

“Don’t stop calling. Don’t let up the pressure. Now is not the time to quiet our voices.   

“Thousands of North Dakotans and millions of Americans have already made their voices heard. They’ve demanded our elected officials work together across the aisle to protect our health care.

“But a small group of Senate and House Republicans are doing everything they can to ignore these calls and revive their efforts to dismantle Medicaid and take health coverage away from millions. This is staggeringly irresponsible. Call Senator Hoeven and tell him to vote NO on any plan that takes away our care. Call Congressman Cramer and tell him that his vote to dismantle Medicaid and put health insurance out of reach for thousands of North Dakotan families was wrong. Our voices will be heard, but only if we keep calling.”
