32BJ SEIU Statement on Obamacare Repeal Bill

The following statement can be attributed to Hector Figueroa, President of 32BJ SEIU:

“With the passage of the healthcare bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the GOP House majority is teaming up with  an administration of the 1% and for the 1%  with a clear goal: to take away healthcare from millions of people, cut taxes to the rich and push an agenda designed to favor the powerful and wealthy over the needs of working families,” said Hector Figueroa President of 32BJ SEIU. “Cheering the passage of a bill that will strip affordable health coverage from tens of millions—as House Republicans are doing—is a disgrace that all decent people should denounce.”

“The Senate must do its job and serve as a firewall against an extremist administration at war with working people.”

En español:

“Con la aprobación del proyecto de ley de salud para derogar Obamacare,  el partido republicano en el Congreso esta compinchándose con una administración del 1% y para el 1% con un objetivo claro: quitar el seguro de salud a millones de personas, reducir los impuestos a los ricos e impulsar una agenda diseñada para favorecer a los poderosos por encima de las necesidades de las familias trabajadoras “, dijo Héctor Figueroa Presidente de la 32BJ SEIU. Aclamar la aprobación de un proyecto de ley que quitará la cobertura de salud a decenas de millones -como están haciendo los republicanos de la Cámara de Representantes- es una desgracia que toda la gente decente debería denunciar.

“El Senado debe hacer su trabajo y servir como un cortafuegos contra una administración extremista en guerra con los trabajadores”.

With 163,000 members in 11 states, including 18,000 in MA, 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service workers union in the country. 32BJ members hail from 64 different countries and speak 28 different languages.
