Gillibrand Rips GOP For “Fixation” on Taking Americans’ Health Care

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) went to the floor of the U.S. Senate yesterday to talk about the new Republican health care measure but also took the time to question why the GOP always seem to be against the elderly and low-income Americans and why their default posture is always to deny health care.

“I’m struggling to understand why amid all of the problems we seem to have and all the problems we need to solve in this chamber, why this congress seems to have a singular fixation on taking away access to health care from some of the most vulnerable people in our communities,” said Gillibrand. “I continue to be amazed by how little empathy there seems to be in this chamber for the millions of women, older Americans, lower income Americans who don’t have the incredible resources that we have here in congress and desperately need the federal programs that this bill will cut.”

Here’s the full video of Senator Gillibrand’s comments:
