PRICE STATEMENT OPPOSING GOP HEALTH CARE BILL
Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) released a statement opposing the Republican health care bill.
The Republican health care proposal, crafted behind closed doors with zero transparency, threatens coverage for millions of Americans. It would also eliminate vital protections of the ACA and gut Medicaid by shifting costs to the states -- which would lead to care rationing for the most vulnerable populations -- in order to provide huge tax breaks to health care industry insiders and the wealthiest Americans.
This misguided legislation would not only increase taxes and premiums for older Americans, it would also eliminate the current requirements for coverage of maternity care and mental health care and defund Planned Parenthood's vital women's health programs.
