Jessica Hulsey Nickel statement about pulling the AHCA

As House leadership pulls the American Health Care Act, one thing remains undeniably certain, there are millions of Americans who have benefited from coverage of substance use disorder under Medicaid. 
We thank Republicans and Democrats who highlighted this point throughout the debate over the future of health care reform in the United States and look forward to working with every Member of Congress to further assist those in need of treatment. 
Most importantly, thank you to the families from every corner of the nation for sharing their stories of recovery, and hope in the face of loss. Your voice carries a weight that is incalculable. You made a difference today and every day.
