Eshoo Statement on Senate Version of Trumpcare

June 26th, 2017

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement after Senate Republicans unveiled a discussion draft of Trumpcare:

“After weeks of secrecy and backroom meetings, the Senate Republicans released their version of Trumpcare. The President called the House Republican bill “mean,” and now the American people can see that this bill is just as heartless and cruel.

“The Senate version will inflict the same damage on the American people as the House bill: it provides less coverage to fewer Americans at higher costs and imposes a crushing age tax on people between the ages of 50-64, and all of this without regard for the fact that health care represents 1/6th of our national economy. The disastrous cuts to Medicaid will destroy jobs across America and force low-income families and seniors with long-term care needs to choose between life and death.

“And the bill is, plain and simple, a plan to cut taxes for the wealthy by destroying health care to tens of millions of fellow Americans. America is losing its moral moorings.”
