McCollum Statement on Newest Version of Trumpcare

May 4, 2017
Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement on House Republicans’ Trumpcare bill, slated for a House vote this afternoon:

“Every family, senior, and person with a disability in Minnesota will have their guaranteed benefits, coverage, and protections stripped away by this dangerous and cruel House Republican bill. It's not surprising that Republicans and President Trump want to provide the richest Americans and big corporations with a win as they destroy the Affordable Care Act.  For working people and every day Americans, this bill takes us backwards.

“Even though Minnesota’s uninsured rate at a historic low, this bill takes health insurance away from hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans, creates a multi-billion dollar budget hole for our state, and caps Medicaid coverage for vulnerable citizens, especially children, seniors, and people with disabilities. This bill is a total loser for Minnesota. Minnesotans can count on me to be a no vote this afternoon. Republicans who vote for it will be held accountable by their constituents.”
