Dem Rep Swalwell: ‘I Was Sick’ After AHCA Passage, ‘But Not Nearly As Sick as the 24 Million’ Who Will Lose Coverage

On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) stated that after the House passed the revised AHCA, “I was sick, but not nearly as sick as the 24 million people who are going to lose coverage, and I think that’s a shame.”

Swalwell said that when the House passed the bill, “[W]hat I was looking at was a text message that a mother in my district had sent me, which said that she had two children with pre-existing conditions, and she was very afraid about what this bill would bring. There were a lot of emotions on the floor. But, I was sick, but not nearly as sick as the 24 million people who are going to lose coverage, and I think that’s a shame.”
