Press Release

Following the release of the House Republican’s health care plan, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12), released the following statement:

“The Affordable Care Act replacement plan released by House Republicans is a nightmare for New Yorkers. Under this GOP plan, families will have to pay more for worse health coverage, costs will go up for the middle class, millions of people will lose health insurance, seniors who depend on Medicare and Medicaid will see their benefits cut and Planned Parenthood will be defunded. New York City’s hospitals will be hit especially hard with the dramatic loss of federal Medicaid funding under this bill, threatening patients’, especially low-income patients’, access to health care services. This plan breaks President Trump’s promise to provide health care for everyone and hits the middle class and working families the hardest. This is a health care plan that New York and our country cannot afford and I will work as I hard as I can to defeat it and protect Americans’ care.”
