Matsui Denounces House Republican Passage of TrumpCare

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) issued the following statement on House Republican passage of TrumpCare:

“The American people watched as House Republicans and President Trump turned their backs on them today.

“This ACA repeal bill will be devastating for nearly every American family. Parents will have less access to things like pediatric and emergency care. School districts will be forced to ration services for children with disabilities. Millions of Americans will see costs sky rocket if they have a pre-existing condition like cancer, asthma, or mental illness. Americans nearing retirement will pay a crippling age tax and seniors will see the Medicare and Medicaid programs they rely on for health and long term care put at risk.

“With the passage of this bill, millions across the country are now less certain of their future.”
