State By State: Schumer Warns of Massive Cuts In Health Care Dollars to States Under Graham-Cassidy

Under Latest Trumpcare Bill In Senate (Graham-Cassidy), Hundreds Of Thousands Of People In States Such As Arizona, Alaska, Maine, Ohio And Arkansas Would Lose Coverage Or See Benefits Cut Graham-Cassidy Would Also Mean Billions Of Dollars In Medicaid Funding Cuts & The End Of Federal Protections For Those With Pre-Existing Conditions Schumer: Trumpcare Is Back, And It’s Meaner Than Ever

September 18, 2017

Washington, D.C. – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today warned that if Congressional Republicans were to pass the Graham-Cassidy legislation, – the latest version of Trumpcare – millions across the country would lose coverage or see major cuts to their benefits, states would see massive cuts in federal health care dollars and Americans with pre-existing conditions would be subject to higher costs and less coverage. Schumer issued this warning in the wake of reports that Senate Republicans have restarted partisan, backroom negotiations to repeal the Affordable Care Act and strip health care away from millions Americans.

“Trumpcare is back, and it’s meaner than ever,” said Leader Schumer. “The GOP’s latest attempt to cut backroom deals that strip health care away from millions of Americans should be a red-siren for families across the country that their health care is on the line. Democrats in the Senate will not stop fighting to protect Americans from the Republicans’ dangerous plan.”
