U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said she was pleased June 27 when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pulled the Republican tax cut and health cut bill from a possible vote this week. “Health care in America should be a right, not a privilege. The decision to pull back a vote on the disastrous GOP health care bill was the right one. But make no mistake, just like the House of Representatives did after their initial failure, I take Majority Leader McConnell at his word that he will bring the bill back to the floor.... Obamacare is not perfect and it is far too expensive for many in our state. I stand ready to work in a bipartisan manner to make improvements to the law that would benefit New Yorkers. Specifically, I believe that all New Yorkers should be able to buy into Medicare at a price they can afford," Gillibrand's statement read.
