Rep. Maloney on Updated CBO Score for Trumpcare

May 24, 2017
Press Release

Following the Congressional Budget Office’s release of an updated analysis of the American Health Care Act, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) released the following statement:

“The new Congressional Budget Office analysis released today confirms our worst fears about Trumpcare. This backwards looking bill strips away coverage from 23 million Americans, imposes a massive age tax on people over 50, steals from Medicare, and is catastrophic for people with pre-existing conditions who could see premiums skyrocket. No matter who you are or what you earn, the Republican health care bill will cost you more for worse coverage. It’s time for Republicans to drop their efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and work with Democrats on a real plan to make improvements to the ACA and build on the progress we’ve made over the last few years.”
