DSCC Statement on Congresswomen Wagner and Hartzler 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 Congresswomen Wagner and Hartzler’s votes moments ago in favor of the Republican health care bill, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman David Bergstein released the following statement. New analyses shows 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.   

“Congresswomen Wagner and Hartzler have broken their promise to voters: their plan spikes costs, slashes coverage and provides a clear and telling example of how they are pushing the agenda of the rich and the powerful at the expense of Missouri residents who actually work for a living. Their 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 they choose to run for Senate, Wagner and Hartzler will be held accountable for their toxic healthcare agenda.”
