Beyer votes against GOP budget measure setting up attempt to repeal the healthcare reform

Virginia Congressman Don Beyer took to the floor of the House today to assail the Republican proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act without any replacement.

 “Together we’ve made significant progress on our budget deficits, but blowing up Obamacare will blow up our national debt [and be] the most fiscally irresponsible act since we waged two wars without paying for them,” said Rep. Don Beyer. “Repeal will cause the state of Virginia to lose up to 100,000 jobs and $50 billion in business output.”

 Beyer voted against the budget measure, S. Con. Res. 3, which is projected to add trillions of dollars to the national debt, and which was the first step towards a GOP attempt to repeal the landmark healthcare reform which brought coverage to tens of millions of Americans.

 The bill passed on a party-line vote.
