DesJarlais in wait-and-see-mode about senate draft of GOP healthcare


June 22, 2017 9:18 pm

Congressman Scott DesJarlais’ Communications Director Brendan Thomas says the congressman’s office is not all that shaken with the Senate’s release of the discussion draft of the already House passed bill.

“Congressman DesJarlais has started reviewing the Senate draft, but emphasizes that it is exactly that: a draft,” Thomas stated. “Just like in the House, this is a process that the bill will need to go through in the Senate and the Congressman has confidence that the the Senate members of the Freedom Caucus will represent the positions he feels best represents his constituents’ wants and needs.”

Thomas emphasized that DesJarlais acknowledges that the House will still need to vote on the Senate final version and had confidence that there will be a bill that goes to the president’s desk.
