Rep. Gallego Issues Statement on CBO Report on Trumpcare
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.
“We knew the Republican repeal bill was nothing more than a tax break for millionaires and billionaires, but now we know exactly how Republicans plan to pay for it: with premium hikes for average Americans. People shopping for coverage in the individual market will see an immediate increase in the cost of insurance. Trumpcare will also leave an additional 24 million Americans without healthcare.
“This CBO report is an embarrassment to Paul Ryan, the Republican Party, and the conservative movement.”
