Congressman Boyle Statement on Congressional Budget Office’s Score of Trumpcare

March 13, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC– Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-13) today released the following statement about the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) official cost estimate for President Trump’s American Health Care Act:

“The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office’s estimate that 24 million Americans would lose coverage over the next 10 years under the Republican health care proposal provides further evidence that this plan would be a disaster for our country. The proposal would also cut a whopping $880 billion in federal Medicaid funding, leaving our most vulnerable seniors, parents, children, and disabled Americans to suffer. Even before the CBO released its score, it was clear to all that Trumpcare would reduce access for those most in need while providing billions in tax breaks for the wealthy. Today, it is all the more clear that Trumpcare really is the Pay More for Less bill. We should be improving upon the ACA, not reversing our progress. Therefore, I will continue to fight against Trumpcare.”
