Larson Condemns GOP ACA Repeal Proposal

March 8, 2017
Press Release

Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement on the GOP ACA Repeal proposal:

“What the American people want is more affordable and more accessible healthcare. Instead of furthering those ends, the Republican proposal to repeal  the Affordable Care Act takes $170 billion away from Medicare in order to pay for tax cuts for billionaires. Essentially, they are taking away money from the hard-working middle class in Connecticut’s First District to give tax breaks to the wealthy, like those in President Trump’s Cabinet. This is unacceptable,” said Larson. “On top of that, the process has been rushed, lacks transparency, and there isn’t even a CBO score that will allow us to understand the human impact of this proposal.  They are being careless with the lives of millions and the American people will not stand for that.”
