Levin Statement on Senate Trumpcare CBO Score

Jun 26, 2017 Issues: Health Care

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09), Ranking Member on the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health, today released the following statement in response to the report by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) on the Senate Trumpcare bill:

“The CBO report should be a death blow to the Republican Senate bill unless its proponents are insensitive to its incredibly harsh impact. Repealing the ACA at any price because of political promises places in jeopardy Americans’ health, and in many cases, their lives.

“The report found that 15 million individuals in the next year and 22 million by 2026 would lose health coverage. The bill decimates Medicaid, which covers so many children and seniors, hits older workers with higher premiums, and undermines the certainty of protections for those with preexisting conditions.

"How in good conscience can Senate Republicans go forth with this?”
