Speaking at the end of a Facebook Live session about the vote scheduled for Thursday in the House of Representatives to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with the Republican-backed American Health Care Act, Congressman Goodalatte said:
“We’re still looking at changes that have been made. There may be changes that could come ahead. We want to make sure we look at all those carefully. But it’s my intention, based up the information I have now, to support this legislation.”
So Goodlatte is prepared to ignore (among other things) the Congressional Budget Office finding that 24 million Americans (including thousands in the Sixth District) stand to lose health insurance under the AHCA, as well as President Trump’s own admission that people living in places which voted for him would do far worse under the AHCA.
Can Goodlatte be convinced by his constituents to change his mind between now and the vote on Thursday? Contact him and find out.
