American Bridge President Jessica Mackler issued the following statement after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released their report on the Republican proposal to eliminate the Affordable Care Act without a replacement:
“Yet again the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has exposed Donald Trump and Republicans as hellbent on taking healthcare from millions of Americans in order to cut taxes for the wealthy – including Donald Trump himself. The vote that Trump and Mitch McConnell insist on holding endangers the care of 32 million Americans, and would mean premiums double for those lucky enough to keep it.
“Only 13% of the American public support this radical ‘give to the rich by taking from everyone else’ approach to revamping health care across the United States, and every Senator should take notice – this is the opposite of populism, and your constituents are will hold you accountable.”
