Congressman Gene Green: 22 Million is Too Many

June 26, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC Today, Congressman Gene Green (D-TX), Ranking Member of the Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Health, issued the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office released its score on the impacts of the Senate Trumpcare bill:

“The CBO score that was released today further confirms that the actions taken by the Senate Republicans are just as mean as the House Republicans. Protections for millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions will be undermined, hard-working families will be expected to pay more for less coverage, and $772 billion will be cut from Medicaid, a safety net for millions of seniors in nursing homes, pregnant women, children, and people with disabilities.”

“The Senate Republicans can change the name of the bill, but as we now know it’s not fundamentally different. I hope this score raises a red flag for Republicans in both the House and Senate and I urge that they reconsider trying to jam their Trumpcare bill through the Senate for a vote. The American people deserve better.”
