Congresswoman Robin Kelly Slams Senate TrumpCare Bill

Jun 22, 2017
Press Release

Congresswoman Robin Kelly, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Health Braintrust, released this statement concerning the Senate’s healthcare bill – commonly known as TrumpCare:

“After weeks of secret, backroom meetings, Senate Republicans have finally released their TrumpCare bill. After reading it, I know why they worked so hard to hide it – it’s a complete and utter disaster.

Your premiums will rise, your insurance will cover less and millions will lose their health insurance just so the super rich can get a $37,000 tax cut.

When President Trump called his legislation “mean;” for once, he wasn’t lying.

If Republicans succeed in passing TrumpCare, it’s Illinois families who will suffer so a tiny fraction of Americans can get a massive tax break.

I urge my colleagues to talk to patients and families; hear their stories; understand their struggles. If they do, there is no way they will vote for this disastrous bill.”
