Last quote by Tom MacArthur

Jul 26 2017 - Obamacare

It's an uphill battle, but we found a way in the House. Look, the fault lines are the same on this issue in the House and in the Senate. They're no different – it's about how to care for vulnerable people and how to bring everyone else's costs down at the same time. … They both have to get reconciled, and if the Senate hasn't had enough time to get there, then maybe in conference we will.feedback

I'm encouraged. Of course, it's a single election in a single district, so you can't read too much into it, in either direction. We still have our work to do. We're going to be judged by voters on what we do, and I've got to keep fighting and not take anything for granted.feedback

If the bill starts going in the reverse direction in order to satisfy certain members of my party, then I'm going to have a problem.
