WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 17, 2017) – This morning, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers hosted Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price for a press conference on capitol hill to talk about House Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a 21st Century health care system that works for every American. You can watch the press conference here:

“The American Health Care Act is much more than a bill. This is a rescue mission. This is a mission to create a better health care future for every person in America.”

Later in the morning, the Congresswoman joined Hallie Jackson on MSNBC to talk more about Republicans’ efforts to create a better health care future all Americans.

“We’ve been working all along with President Trump, with Vice President Mike Pence, with the Senate, the House. This has been weeks, months in negotiations and in the process and we’re going to continue to work with them. I do believe it is very important that the country is hearing the details, that the country becomes more informed as to what this bill actually does. There’s been a lot of mis-characterizations. There’s been fear about what the bill does and does not do, and so I think Republicans must educate America, and I believe that as people become more informed they are going to be excited about this new direction on health care that means a better health care program for everyone in this country.”

Minutes later, Rep. McMorris Rodgers joined America’s Newsroom on Fox News to talk about the open, transparent process for the American Health Care Act.

“We’re working through the legislative process. We’re on track. We’ve been doing this in an open, transparent way. You’ve seen us work through the committee process… and our goal is to put it on the floor next week. We believe that action is necessary right now.”
