Schatz: Trumpcare Would Strip Health Insurance From 24 Million Americans

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act in a strictly partisan vote.

“House Republicans rammed through a bill that would strip at least 24 million Americans of their health care and raise the costs for those with pre-existing conditions. It’s shameful and immoral. But it can stop here. The Senate has the opportunity to walk away from Trumpcare and instead work in a bipartisan way to improve people’s health care, not take it away.”
