DSCC Statement on Passage of the GOP Health Care Bill

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

In response to the House of Representatives voting on the Republican’s disastrous health care bill, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Press 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.   

“The toxic Republican Healthcare Plan spikes costs, slashes coverage and provides a clear example of how the GOP has broken their promise to voters —  pushing the agenda of the rich and the powerful at the expense of Wisconsinites who actually work for a living. This 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 any Republican who runs for Senate in 2018 will own this plan and be held accountable for the toxic GOP healthcare agenda.”
