DSCC Statement on Congressman Jenkins Voting ‘YES’ On GOP Health Care Bill

Health Care Bill Guts Coverage for Pre-Existing Conditions and Makes You Pay More for Less Care

In response to Congressman Jenkin’s vote moments ago in favor of the Republican health care bill, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman David Bergstein released the following statement. New analyses show the bill will protect just 5 percent of Americans with pre-existing conditions and also threatens “about half of the country” who receive employer provided coverage.   

“Congressman Jenkin has broken his promise to voters: his plan spikes costs, slashes coverage and provides a clear and telling example of how he is pushing the agenda of the rich and the powerful at the expense of West Virginia residents who actually work for a living. His Plan makes older Americans pay five times more for care, strips away coverage for pre-existing conditions, and threatens vital drug abuse prevention and women’s healthcare services, all to give big insurance companies another handout. Americans of every political persuasion are united in opposition to these proposals and if he chooses to run for Senate, Jenkins will be held accountable for his toxic healthcare agenda.”
