  • Obamacare Repeal Would Hurt Effort To Treat Opioid Addiction - 05-17-17
    Print Icon May 16, 2017

    By Doug Cunningham

    U.S. Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia joined five other Democratic U.S. Senators Tuesday to warn that repealing the Affordable Care Act would hurt the effort to fight America's opioid addiction epidemic.

    It would effectively cut available treatment for opioid addiction.

    Manchin's state is being hit hard by opioid abuse - a huge public health issue across America.

    [U.S. Senator Joe Manchin]: "This is not a Republican or Democrat problem at all. It's an American problem.

    So I don't care whether you're a Republican or Democrat, you're conservative or liberal. Whatever you may be, you better work with us and try to find a solution.

     And throwing this part of it out the window, like the baby with the bath water, is not the way to fix it, I assure you." 

    Manchin was joined by U.S. Senators Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) , Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Edward Markey (D-MA) and Maggie Hassan (D-NH).
