Senator Patty Murray Responds

Dear Dr. Dhillon:

Thank you for contacting me regarding the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Your opinions on this topic are powerful and deeply felt, and please know that I respect them.

The ACA has helped a record number of Americans obtain insurance, but there is still more work to be done to improve our health care system. Unfortunately, Republicans in Congress are currently attempting to go backward instead of forward. They want to repeal the ACA without any kind of replacement, ripping health care away from millions of Americans and creating chaos throughout our whole economy.  I believe this is absolutely the wrong path for Washington state families and our economy.

I am ready like I always have been to talk about ways to expand access to quality, affordable health care coverage. But first, Republicans in Congress have to show that they are willing to put families ahead of politics. Please rest assured, I will continue to fight to protect access to health care for families in Washington state and across the country.

Again, thank you for writing me about this important issue.  If you would like to know more about my work in the Senate, please feel free to sign up for my updates at  Please keep in touch.


Patty Murray
United States Senator
