WASHINGTON, D.C. ―U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich, Ranking Member of the Joint Economic Committee, released the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) scored the GOP healthcare plan.
According to CBO estimates, 14 million would be uninsured by 2018 and 26 million by 2026.
“The Congressional Budget Office has confirmed that the Republican healthcare bill will be as disastrous as we expected. 14 million will be uninsured by next year, and 24 million by 2026. The Republican plan would mean a school teacher pays more for their health care so that a hedge fund manager can get a six figure tax break. That’s unconscionable. Having an economy that works for all means making sure Americans get the affordable health care they deserve.”
