Chairman Crowley Statement on Latest Republican Effort to Strip 32 Million of Health Care Coverage

July 20, 2017

(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office released its analysis of the Senate Republicans’ latest version of Trumpcare:

“Congressional Republicans have failed each time they’ve put forward a new health care bill –and deservedly so, as stripping millions of Americans of their health care coverage and doubling premium costs would hurt hardworking families. This latest effort is their worst attempt yet, with 32 million Americans at risk of losing access to affordable and quality health care. This would be a devastating blow to families across the country. It must be rejected.

“Democrats will keep fighting against this bill to protect the hardest-working Americans. It is time for Republicans to end their political obsession with the Affordable Care Act and work with Democrats to improve health care in our country.”
