Rep. Susan Davis Statement on Partisan Bill to Fund Community Health Centers and Children’s Health Care
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis released the following statement on passage of the partisan bill to fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program and community health centers.
“I wanted to vote for this bill but the final product put partisanship before patients. Instead of working to get Democrats to yes, this bill asks some seniors to pay more for prescription drugs and slashes preventative health programs. This is just a day after introducing a tax plan that explodes the deficit by $1.5 trillion.
“Health Centers in my district provide services to 475,000 people, including children who get health care through CHIP. Health Centers are rapidly approaching a funding cliff unless Congress acts in a bipartisan way to fix this.”
