Rep. Kelly's Statement on Forthcoming AHCA Vote
Washington, DC - Congresswoman Robin Kelly, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Health Braintrust, released this statement following the announcement of a vote on Zombie TrumpCare:
"It shows a callous lack of courage for Republicans to make stealing from MediCare, passing an 'age tax' and voting to strip millions of Americans of health insurance, the last thing they do before skipping town for recess.
This is a disastrous follow-up to the GOP's first health proposal. Somehow this bill managed to be worse than the original TrumpCare bill that was scrapped.
Far from protecting patients and lowering premiums, this bill will rise costs and leave millions without the everyday security and peace of mind that comes with having quality health insurance.
I'm 100 percent opposed to this horrific bill and I'm committed to working with anyone and everyone to take it down and continue the fight to make health insurance affordable and accessible for all."
