Eshoo: Trumpcare is ‘wrong, immoral, dishonors my constituents and American people’

May 4th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C— Today, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released a statement following the passage of Trumpcare.

“Today House Republicans voted once again to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Their so-called health care bill will rob 24 million Americans from insurance coverage, including the evisceration of essential health benefits like ambulatory patient services, emergency services, hospitalization, maternity, newborn care, mental health and substance use disorder services, prescription drugs, rehabilitation services and devices, laboratory services, preventive services and pediatric services.

“Trumpcare will result in less coverage for fewer Americans at higher costs; imposes a crushing tax on older Americans between the ages of 50-64; and strips away Medicaid from millions of low-income families and children. They have brought their legislation to the Floor with an amendment written in the dead-of-night that will push Americans with pre-existing conditions off their insurance and into high risk pools where they will face soaring costs with less coverage and restricted care. And their process is as bad as the bill. It has not been subjected for analysis for costs and impacts by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), and the American people have no idea what it will cost.

“This bill is wrong, it’s immoral and it dishonors my constituents, the people of our country and the great values of our nation.”

This legislation is opposed by 97 organizations, from seniors, to doctors, nurses, hospitals, veterans, religious organizations and countless advocacy organizations:
