Pallone Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

For Immediate Release
Jan. 8th, 2016

 Emphasizes her Defense of Affordable Care Act

Long Branch - Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr (D-NJ), Ranking Member of the House Energy & Commerce Committee, endorsed Hillary Clinton for President today in the aftermath of the most recent GOP effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which has now been sent to President Obama for his signature or veto. Pallone was an original author of the Affordable Care Act.

“This week Republicans voted for the 62nd time to unravel the Affordable Care Act, threatening the health coverage of 22 million Americans. Meanwhile, they have no plan for replacement. While I am confident that this political maneuver will be rejected by the President, it is critical we work to elect a new president who will continue to protect the law and build upon it. We cannot allow Republicans to reverse the progress we have made to improve access to health care in this country.

Hillary Clinton has made healthcare reform a priority from the time she was the First Lady and during her highly successful tenure as a senator from New York. She’s been out front promoting the Affordable Care Act from the beginning and encouraging Americans to sign up for its coverage. I know she will make a great President, but I am emphasizing her support for the Affordable Care Act in my endorsement today because it is so crucial to have a President who will fight against GOP efforts to repeal or dismantle the Act.” said Pallone.
