Moulton to Fight Republican Plan to Dismantle Health Care for Millions of Americans

March 13th, 2017

Moulton: “They’re jamming through a replacement that shifts the tax burden to seniors and hardworking Americans.”

Salem, MA – Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) released the following statement about the Republican repeal bill after the Congressional Budget Office, whose director was appointed by a Republican Speaker, released a reporting on the consequences of the GOP plan.

“The Affordable Care Act has expanded affordable coverage, prevented people from going bankrupt to pay for lifesaving treatments, and has begun reducing the costs of health care. I’ve always said that I welcome improvements to the ACA to achieve better outcomes at lower costs and improve coverage for more Americans, but Republicans have failed to do that with this plan.

“Instead, they’re jamming through a bill that shifts the tax burden to seniors and hardworking Americans who will be forced to make a choice between paying for lifesaving treatment or paying their electric bill.

“Fourteen million Americans who have health insurance today will lose it next year under the Republican plan. Twenty-four million will lose it in 10 years. And those who have health insurance will be paying more money for less coverage.

“During my ACA town hall in Gloucester, I heard from Rosemary whose five year old daughter’s life was saved because of the ACA, and Amy who talked about her friend with MS who would not have been able to afford her medication without the insurance she received through the ACA. Healthcare is a human right–this means that no matter your age, gender, or wealth, you should be afforded the same access to care. This bill fails in every way to meet that standard, and that’s why I oppose it and will continue to fight against it. The American people deserve better.”
