Senate Minority Leader chuck schumer and other democrats held a press conference on puerto rico and the Graham Cassidy healthcare bill 9/26/2017Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Tuesday that it is a "sigh of relief" to many Americans that the Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill will not pass the Senate after Republicans deemed the bill dead Tuesday after more than two GOP senators indicated they would not support the bill."Today, Americans breathe a sigh of relief because the healthcare of millions has been protected and preserved," Schumer said during Democratic leadership's weekly press conference. "We Democrats believe this isn't a day for celebration, but a day to roll up our sleeves and work to make the healthcare system better than it is today."Schumer told reporters that he hopes Republicans do not try to revive the Graham-Cassidy legislation again, either later this year or next year as Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., indicated moments earlier."We hope that the Republicans don't come back to this bill. It'll meet with the same fate it met this time," Schumer said, referring to the failed attempts to pass the Better Care Reconciliation Act and the "skinny" repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
