WVDP CHAIR ON GOP DELAY OF HEALTHCARE REPEAL VOTE & CAPITO OPPOSITION
(Charleston, WV)- WVDP Chairwoman Belinda Biafore released the following statement on GOP’s health care vote delay and Sen. Capito’s opposition to the bill:
“It’s clear that the GOP is having trouble finding enough support to strip Americans and West Virginians of their healthcare coverage. But make no mistake, they will find a way to continue their attack on our health care,” said Belinda Biafore, WVDP Chair.
“The delay of the vote until after the July 4th holiday is nothing more than the GOP giving themselves and Trump time to lobby for more support. They aren’t worried about us. They aren’t worried about children, seniors, and families they are taking health care from. They are worried about themselves and their political loyalties.
“I encourage everyone to keep calling Senator Shelley Moore Capito to continue sharing their stories. I know a lot of West Virginians are hopeful that she will continue her stance against the disastrous Senate health care bill that hurts so many here at home. Folks have been visiting her office and calling in hopes that they can make a difference so that their families will not lose their coverage. This is a win for them and I hope for the people of West Virginia that she stays true to her word and stops the attack on the health care of our fellow West Virginians. ”
