Schumer Statement On Latest CBO Report Confirming Trump-GOP Sabotage Of Healthcare System Is Raising Costs For American Families

May 23, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the new CBO report, which outlines the cost of federal subsidies for health insurance coverage for people under age 65 and confirms the Trump-GOP sabotage of the healthcare system is increasing premiums for American families:

“CBO just confirmed that the Trump-GOP sabotage of our healthcare system is causing premiums to rise for millions of Americans – period. To boot, the new CBO report says the Trump administration’s expansion of junk insurance plans will leave millions more Americans susceptible to denied coverage and medical bankruptcy, all while the big drug companies and major corporate executives reap the lion’s share of the new tax law’s benefit. As soon as the Trump administration ends their sabotage, Democrats stand ready to work in a bipartisan way to make health care more affordable for the American people.”
