SACRAMENTO – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation to strip health care coverage from more than five million Californians by dismantling the Affordable Care Act:

“I believe health care is a right. Today’s House vote takes a dangerous step towards jeopardizing the health security of millions of people in our state and throughout the country. 

"As a Member of Congress, I was proud to help expand health coverage and lower costs for hardworking Americans. Every Member of Congress who voted for today's bill must answer why it is good to take away an American's access to his or her doctor. Would they do this to themselves or their family? 

"As California's Attorney General, I will use every legal tool at my disposal to safeguard the healthcare the people of our state depend on.”
