LARSON: Republican 'Better Care Act' would leave 22 million without care

June 26, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement after the CBO score for the Senate Republican’s Better Care Reconciliation Act was released:


“The Republicans and the President have not been honest with the American people. From the start, this bill was never about health care, it was always about clearing the path for tax cuts. It is unconscionable, illogical, and frankly immoral to push through a bill that would throw 22 million Americans off of their health care in order to give tax breaks to the wealthiest 1 percent of the nation. I urge my Republican colleagues in the Senate to oppose this ‘mean’ bill that would devastate families, older Americans, veterans, people with disabilities, and others across Connecticut and the country. It is beyond belief that anybody in the Senate,  many of whom are reasonable and genuinely worried about the ability of their constituents to access health care services, could support this bill. I will continue to fight this legislation on behalf of the 22 million Americans that should not have to do without health care just to help Republicans fulfill a campaign promise.”
