Wyden Statement on Revised Senate Trumpcare Bill

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement after Senate Republicans made public the new version of Trumpcare:

“Senate Republicans have ignored weeks of overwhelming public outcry and rewritten their bill to endanger the health and well-being of even more Americans,” Wyden said. “Trumpcare is still about raising health costs for middle-class families, giving tax breaks to special interests, and keeping the deep cuts to Medicaid that threaten vulnerable Americans across every generation. By including the Cruz amendment, Senate Republicans are prescribing health care chaos by isolating Americans with pre-existing conditions and forcing them to pay astronomical costs to get the care they need.”
