GOP House member walks back remark that ‘nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care’

GOP House member walks back remark that ‘nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care’Labrador had claimed during a Friday town hall that people don’t die because of health care access. “I don’t mandate anything,” Labrador responded. After the comments caught fire, Labrador posted a clarifying statement on Facebook saying his remark was an attempt “to explain that all hospitals are required by law to treat patients in need of emergency care regardless of their ability to pay and that the Republican plan does not change that.” Labrador also tried to deflect criticism by pointing out that the back-and-forth picked up came at the end of a longer exchange, which he posted in full.
