More on Health Care

November 16, 2017 Press Release
“The Trump-GOP tax scam singles out Minnesotans for higher taxes by ending the state and local tax deduction, punishes people with high medical bills by eliminating the medical expense deduction, and even makes it harder for students and families to pay for college. This bill will explode the federal debt, guaranteeing that Republicans will move forward with cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and eventually Social Security."
November 3, 2017 Statements For the Record
"While I support reauthorizing funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and various other important public health programs, I oppose this bill because it cuts funding for public health, puts families at risk of losing their health insurance, and weakens Medicare."
October 19, 2017 Press Release
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) delivered remarks at the 50th anniversary celebration for the Open Cities Health Center and urged Republicans to restore funding for community health centers.
October 13, 2017 Press Release
“With Republicans’ destructive health care legislation stalled in Congress, President Trump has apparently decided on a back door sabotage that will dramatically increase costs for families in Minnesota and across America."
October 5, 2017 Press Release
U.S. Representatives Betty McCollum, Keith Ellison, Rick Nolan, Collin Peterson, and Tim Walz wrote today to Acting Health and Human Services Secretary Don Wright and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma, urging them to rescind their proposed cuts to MinnesotaCare.
July 28, 2017 Press Release
"Beginning today, Congressional Republicans must work with Democrats for bipartisan health care solutions that build on the success of the Affordable Care Act. And the Trump administration must stop sabotaging this law and making it harder for families to get the care they need."
July 18, 2017 Press Release
“The Trump-Pence-Ryan-McConnell plan for health care was never about helping Americans. Instead, it has always been about tax cuts for billionaires paid for by sabotaging the Affordable Care Act and terminating care for our children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities. Today, Trumpcare is collapsing under the weight of its cruelty and the American people’s resistance to this terrible legislation."
June 22, 2017 Press Release
Just like House Republicans’ legislation, Senate Republicans’ Trumpcare bill takes away health care from children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities in order to give billionaires lavish tax breaks.
May 23, 2017 Press Release
President Trump’s 2018 budget is a cruel and reckless plan that benefits billionaires, punishes the vulnerable, and abandons working families and small businesses. I strongly oppose this budget and will do everything I can to prevent its callous policies from becoming law.
May 4, 2017 Press Release
The passage of Trumpcare is a reflection of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans’ values: they will abandon the sick and the vulnerable to give tax breaks to billionaires and big corporations.
