Statement from Senator Elizabeth Warren on Trumpcare

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released the following statement today after the American Health Care Act (ACHA) was passed by the House of Representatives:

"Trumpcare isn't a health care bill. A bill that destroys health care for millions to shovel cash to the rich isn't a health care bill. This is the same cruel bill that House Republicans tried to pass weeks ago. It still strips coverage from millions. Still guts Medicaid. Still strips funds away from states like Massachusetts that are battling the opioid crisis. The only thing that's changed about Trumpcare in recent weeks is that they made the original plan even more brutal. This isn't football. It's not about scoring points. Trumpcare will devastate Americans' healthcare. Families will go bankrupt. People will die. Disease, sickness, and old age touch every family. Tragedy doesn't ask who you voted for. Health care is a basic human right. We'll fight as long and hard as we can to make that a reality for everyone in America."
