Washington, D.C. — Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on Republicans’ latest outline to Make America Sick Again:

“Make no mistake: Republicans’ health agenda will Make America Sick Again.  Beneath Republicans’ cynical platitudes is a radical effort to dump massive health costs onto middle class families while handing a multi-million dollar tax break to the 400 wealthiest families in America.

“The GOP’s outline completely fails the American people on cost, quality and coverage.  Republicans will dramatically raise the out-of-pocket health care costs of working families, make their coverage unreliable and threadbare, and push many Americans out of health coverage of any kind.  With their radical assault on Medicaid, Republicans are taking health care away from millions of seniors and the disabled, while abandoning states fighting the tragedy of opioid addiction.

“The American people are mobilizing against Republicans’ war on affordable, quality health care.  While Republicans hide from their constituents, Democrats will continue to fight to ensure that every American has access to affordable health coverage.”
