3-23-17

Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement on Facebook today regarding Congressional Repblicans' legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act and cut healthcare coverage for millions of Americans:

"Today, Paul Ryan and Donald Trump are working to strip 24 million people of their healthcare and defund Planned Parenthood, endangering lives to score political points. Let's reject their shameless and dangerous political scam. Healthcare should never be a privilege based on wealth or gender. It's a basic. human. right."
