“The Congressional Budget Office confirmed the grave doubts we’ve had about the American Health Care Act. Lawmakers promised ‘more for less’ but this bill delivers the opposite – fewer people with skimpier coverage and higher costs. In just one year, 14 million Americans would lose their insurance, spiking to 24 million who would lose coverage in the next 10 years. Despite the many budgetary tricks in this bill to disguise the true cost of this legislation, lawmakers can no longer hide the fact that this bill would leave millions uninsured.
“Consumers have made it clear at town halls and events across the country that losing their insurance coverage is a top national concern. If lawmakers insist on recklessly moving forward to pass the American Health Care Act, they send a clear message to their constituents that their voices are ignored in the nation’s capital.”
