Brownley on Senate GOP Bill: CBO Score is More Proof This is a Tax Cut Bill, Not Healthcare Bill

Today, Congresswoman Julia Brownley issued the following statement on the recently released Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score of the Senate Republican’s bill:

“The news today from the Congressional Budget Office that the Senate Republican’s bill will eliminate healthcare completely for 22 million Americans just confirms what we already knew: This isn’t a healthcare bill. It is a tax cut for the wealthy few.”

“We need to make our healthcare system work better for all Americans, but this bill takes us in the wrong direction. It would undermine healthcare access for veterans, seniors, and women.  It would worsen the opioid addiction epidemic. It would allow insurance companies to impose lifetime caps on coverage and discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions.” 

“I hope my Senate Republican colleagues will go back to the drawing board.  We must ensure that every American has the chance for a healthy future.”
