U.S. Rep. Conor Lamb, D-Mt. Lebanon, is supporting a resolution condemning the GOP lawmakers who are continuing efforts to overturn the Affordable Care Act.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched digital ads in Lamb’s congressional district praising him for his efforts.

“Yet again, Republicans are attacking the health care of Pennsylvanians and jeopardizing their access to affordable coverage,” said DCCC spokesman Mike Gwin. “However, Congressman Lamb’s vote today to condemn this latest attempt to undermine our health shows clearly that Lamb is on the side of the middle-class.”

President Trump made a campaign promise to repeal and replace the ACA. However, Trump now says he is delaying that effort until after the 2020 election.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
