Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32) today released the following statement after introducing a resolution condemning the Administration's attacks on the American health care system:

“Americans are facing higher health care costs than ever, but this Administration’s lawsuit would drive up prices and put coverage out of reach for thousands of Texas families.

“I came to Washington to get things done, and I’ll work with anyone to lower costs and defend protections for those with pre-existing conditions. I’m proud to the lead this resolution and to assure Americans that this Congress will not allow people with pre-existing conditions to go back to the days where they could be thrown off their health care just because they got sick.”

The resolution comes after the Administration decided to back the full invalidation of the Affordable Care Act in federal court.  

The resolution is scheduled to be voted on early next week. Read the text of the resolution here: PDF icon20190329 Allred resolution condemning Admin on ACA.pdf

Allred’s record on health care:

Allred passed a bipartisan resolution on January 9 that authorized the House to intervene as a party in the Texas lawsuit seeking to undermine the Affordable Care Act.

Additionally, Allred has cosponsored the Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions & Making Health Care More Affordable Act of 2019. A bill that will stabilize the individual health care marketplace, reverse partisan sabotage of the Affordable Care Act and bring down health care costs for consumers.
