Washington, D.C. – On Saturday night, U.S. Rep. Rubén Hinojosa voted with the House Democratic majority to pass a controversial piece of legislation, which allegedly will extend affordable quality coverage to all Americans.

“Congress has attempted to reform our broken health care system since President Theodore Roosevelt. We have stalled for too long; today we have acted for our country and our constituents,” Hinojosa said.

The Democrat congressman claims that H.R. 3962 makes health care more affordable for the middle-class, provides security for seniors and guarantees access to health insurance for the 317,000 uninsured in the 15th Congressional District of Texas and authorizes $500 million that would help create a medical school in underserved areas like the district.

This bill will provide credits to help 187,000 households in the district buy health insurance, he adds.
