Congresswoman Robin Kelly Responds to CBO Score on TrumpCare

Congresswoman Robin Kelly

Washington, DC –(ENEWSPF)—May 24, 2017.  Congresswoman Robin Kelly, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Health Braintrust, released this statement concerning the independent, nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) analysis of the American Health Care Act – also known as TrumpCare:

“This score confirms what we already knew: TrumpCare is a disaster and if enacted, will kill thousands of Americans every year.

TrumpCare saddles older Americans with an unfair age tax, strips 23 million Americans of their health insurance and punishes victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.

I remain deeply troubled by my Republican colleagues rush to pass this disastrous bill before the CBO completed its analysis and we understood the impact of TrumpCare. After seeing today’s score, I know why.

I’m proud to stand with the countless Illinois families in opposing TrumpCare, a position supported by the American Medical Association, American Nurses Association, American Hospital Association, National Rural Health Association, AARP, March of Dimes and the Cancer Action Network.

When it comes to TrumpCare, House Republicans need to put politics aside and listen to the American people; less than 20 percent of Americans support this disastrous bill.

It’s time to scrap the pending disaster that is TrumpCare and get to work on making healthcare affordable and accessible for all.”
