Payne, Jr. Statement on Senate Health Care Bill

Jun 22, 2017 Issues: Health Care

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Donald M. Payne, Jr. (NJ-10) issued the following statement today after Senate Republicans released their Trumpcare bill:

“Senate Republicans negotiated this bill in the dark, and that’s where it should have stayed. When you think about what it would do to millions of American families—taking away their health coverage, raising their costs, gutting their protections, like those for pre-existing conditions—it’s unconscionable that anyone would support this bill. We hear a lot about Republicans keeping their promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but at what cost? Trumpcare is fatally flawed. Republicans need to come to the table with Democrats and make improvements to the law, not destroy it and inflict harm on millions.”
