Eshoo Statement on Updated Trumpcare CBO Score

May 25th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C— Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement in response to the Congressional Budget Office’s updated score for the Trumpcare bill passed by House Republicans earlier this month:

“The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has once again put out the facts on Trumpcare, and they further confirm how damaging the legislation is.

After the dead-of-night changes by Republicans, the legislation provides less coverage for higher costs, with 23 million Americans projected to lose their health insurance. Essential health benefits will be eviscerated for millions of Americans, creating huge cost increases for basic coverage such as maternity care, addiction and mental health treatment, and emergency services. The bill also strips away Medicaid from millions of low-income families and children, and imposes a crushing age tax on older Americans.

“Republican and Democratic Senators alike have said Trumpcare is dead on arrival in the upper chamber. We can only hope it stays that way.”
