CHANTILLY, Va. -- Community leader Karrie Delaney today released the following statement regarding Jim LeMunyon's refusal to stand up against Trumpcare in an email to a constituent in which he wrote, “I don’t have a position on the Senate bill, just as I didn't take a position on the House version,” and added that “I don’t intend to spend much time on their details” because he did not think there was more than a “50-50 chance” that Trumpcare would pass.
“It's disappointing to see that Jim LeMunyon refuses to stand up against Trumpcare, and instead has decided to not spend time with the details of a bill that if passed, will lead to increased premiums and over 400,000 people in Virginia losing health coverage in 2018 alone. This is just another example of LeMunyon failing to do his job. At a time of such uncertainty in Washington, we need Delegates who will fight for and protect the people of Virginia. I'm running for Delegate to be an advocate for the people of Virginia's 67th District and work to expand access to health care in Virginia by making it more affordable and accessible for everyone."
