Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the proposed amendments to the American Health Care Act:

"Despite the proposed amendments, I still cannot support the House health-care bill, nor would it pass the Senate. The amendments improve the Medicaid reforms in the original bill, but do little to address the core problem of Obamacare: rising premiums and deductibles, which are making insurance unaffordable for too many Arkansans. The House should continue its work on this bill. It's more important to finally get health-care reform right than to get it fast."
