Eshoo Statement on CBO Score of Senate Trumpcare Bill
June 27th, 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C— Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office released its analysis of Senate Republicans’ Trumpcare bill:
“Today’s report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office confirms that the Senate Republicans’ version of Trumpcare is just as ‘mean’ and ‘heartless’ as the House version. Twenty-two million Americans losing their health coverage is twenty-two million too many. The increase in premiums and out-of-pocket costs will force even more Americans with chronic illnesses to go without the medications they need to survive.
“This bill is a hodgepodge of unworkable ideas that will hurt children and families across our country, damage our national economy and diminish the character of our country.”
