Rep. Gene Green Statement on New TrumpCare CBO Score

May 24, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Gene Green (D-TX) released the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office, an independent, nonpartisan office, released an updated score on the budgetary impacts of the Republican bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act:


“The latest numbers released by the CBO doesn’t change the devastating effect this bill will have on millions of Americans across the country,” said Green. “It only reinforces what we already knew about the House Republicans’ bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act: millions will lose coverage, weaker protections and higher costs.”


“I have worked tirelessly to increase health care coverage for my constituents and the American people. The revised bill will only make it more difficult for sicker people to receive affordable care, including older people with lower income and those with preexisting conditions.”


“As I’ve said before, we should have never had a final vote without an updated CBO score. Too many changes were made to the original bill behind closed-doors and without any input from stakeholders or the American public. Now we are left with a version of a bill that will leave millions paying more for less.”
