Washington, D.C. –Congressman Ruben Gallego issued a statement on today’s vote on the Republican health care bill that repeals the Affordable Care Act and gives massive tax breaks to the top 1% of wealthiest Americans. The vote takes place on the 7th anniversary of the signing of the Affordable Care Act, which has expanded health coverage to an additional 20 million people.
Rep. Gallego issued the following statement:
Congressman Ruben Gallego issued the following statement on the Congressional Budget Office’s report showing the disastrous impact Trumpcare will have on American families:
“Today’s nonpartisan CBO report included some numbers that were nowhere to be found in Speaker Paul Ryan’s recent PowerPoint presentation on Trumpcare. The report shows that the GOP repeal plan just means higher premiums and less coverage for working families.
“Tom Price is cut from the same cloth as Donald Trump. When facing the choice of either looking out for the American people or padding their own bottom lines, Trump and Price will always stick it to the American people. As we have learned in recent weeks, Tom Price enriched himself in Congress by investing in the very same drug companies he worked to protect. Tom Price also accepted a privileged offer to buy discounted shares of a foreign drug company—an opportunity that was extended to fewer than 20 Americans. This is simply outrageous.
