Moulton Statement on Latest AHCA CBO Score
May 24th, 2017
“Disastrous for Our Economy”
Washington, D.C. – In response to the latest CBO Score of the AHCA, which estimates that the number of people who are uninsured would increase by 23 million by 2026 compared to the current law, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) released the following statement:
“The latest CBO score proves what we already knew to be true – jamming through a bill that shifts the tax burden to hardworking Americans in the middle class is disastrous for our economy. I’ve always said the Affordable Care Act isn’t perfect and that we should improve it in a bipartisan way, just as we did in Massachusetts. But Republicans have not even tried, and now we have a nonpartisan report to prove that their Trumpcare bill will mean financial ruin for millions of American families and for our economy as well. I urge both Democrats and Republicans in the Senate to reject this bill, and call on my colleagues to work on improving health care, not taking it away from millions of hardworking Americans.”
