ROSEN: SENATE GOP'S REPEAL BILL IS AN ASSAULT ON NEVADANS’ HEALTH CARE

June 22, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement in response to the release of Senate Republicans’ version of Trumpcare:

“Senate Republicans are rallying around a plan that will make health care even more expensive for Nevadans and with the deep cuts to Medicaid, entirely out of reach for some of our families. It's disappointing to see how far Senate Republicans are willing to go to give the wealthiest among us a tax cut, which this bill pays for by passing the bill to hundreds of thousands of Nevadans, including vulnerable children, women, working families living paycheck to paycheck, and middle class seniors with long-term care needs who rely on Medicaid.

“The vast majority of Nevadans oppose this repeal bill because they see it for what it is: a cruel bill that implements a crushing age tax on older Americans, weakens essential health benefits protections, defunds Planned Parenthood, and strips away access to care for our most vulnerable citizens.

“People in my district will be personally devastated by this disastrous legislation. Senate Republicans should reject this partisan repeal effort and focus on working across the aisle to lower your costs and expand access to affordable health care for all Americans."
