MassGOP Statement On Senator Warren's Vote Against Bipartisan Medical Legislation

BOSTON - Sen. Elizabeth Warren today voted against the bipartisan 21st Century Cures Act, an important bill that would invest critical resources in battling the opioid crisis and advancing important medical research. Fortunately, enough Senators signed onto the bipartisan bill and rejected Warren's obstructionism to pass the legislation, 94-5. Warren's opposition to the bill was seen as an obstructionist tactic designed to advance her political priorities.

"Sen. Warren's decision to vote against bipartisan legislation to advance medical innovation makes it abundantly clear where her priorities are. Warren is more concerned about scoring political points than investing in cancer research, or efforts to battle the opioid crisis. As a US Senator for a state that values leadership in the areas of medical innovation and scientific advancement, Warren's partisan posturing represents a complete failure of leadership." -MassGOP Chairman Kirsten Hughes
