Yarmuth Statement on Latest Senate Trumpcare Bill

Jul 13, 2017

Washington, D.C.— Today Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement on the latest version of the Senate Trumpcare bill:  

 

“The original Senate repeal bill was the least popular Congressional legislation in at least the last 30 years. This new version is even worse. It’s incoherent as policy, guts protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and is peppered with special pay-offs to buy the votes of individual Senators.  It is stunningly cold in its total disregard of the health care needs of American families, and will have life or death consequences for many. Republicans need to end this desperate attempt at a political win no matter the cost, and work with Democrats to improve the Affordable Care Act.”
