Columbus—Today, Ohio Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) issued the following statement after Congress voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act and put the health care of many Ohioans in jeopardy:

“Shame on Republicans in Congress for celebrating a vote that will hurt the health of our nation and our state. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act we have made significant progress to ensure that more Ohioans have access to quality affordable health care.  This vote is a huge step in the wrong direction.  It will undermine Medicaid expansion and lead to higher costs for older Ohioans and people with pre-existing conditions.  The end result will be that fewer of us can afford health insurance and that is nothing to celebrate.”
