Wyden Comment on Committee Hearing on Graham-Cassidy-Heller Bill

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued the following statement on the announcement of a single committee hearing on the Cassidy-Graham-Heller health care proposal:

“Even setting aside the disastrous consequences the Cassidy-Graham-Heller bill would have for Americans across the country, the Finance Committee cannot adequately examine a proposal this massive in a single hearing and without a full analysis from CBO,” Wyden said. “What Americans deserve is a full debate on Cassidy-Graham-Heller with multiple committee hearings and markups to expose the harmful consequences of this legislation. This is a sham process that makes a mockery of regular order.”
