“House Republicans have shown that they will go to any length to try to block access to quality health care for tens of millions of Americans.
“The fact is, an overwhelming majority want the Affordable Care Act and believe that Republicans are acting like spoiled children throwing a tantrum. This tantrum could end up costing our nation billions of dollars and will negatively affect the most marginalized in our society.
“The truth is, the Affordable Care Act will help ensure access to health care for millions of Americans who are uninsured — including many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people who desperately need it. Health care delayed is health care denied. And health care denied is putting lives in jeopardy.
“It’s time for Congress to stop playing games with our healthcare and the economy.
