    Reed, Whitehouse & RIers Urge GOP to Unveil Health Care Bill

    6/16/2017 — 

    Senator Reed joined Senator Whitehouse and concerned Rhode Islanders at the Rhode Island Health Center Association in Providence to urge Republicans to start holding public hearings and to declare that the public has a right to know what is in the GOP’s health care bill and how it will impact them and their loved ones.  The event wa a rallying cry against the House Republicans’ version of Trumpcare, which was forced through the House last month without proper vetting and before the CBO could study its costs and impacts.  Reed, Whitehouse, and several of their colleagues have offered new legislation – The No Hearing, No Vote Act – to require that any legislation going through the fast-tracked budget reconciliation process have at least one committee hearing and be reported out by at least one of the instructed Senate Committees before the full Senate may consider it.
