Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on the latest iteration of Trumpcare released by Senate Republicans today:  
“The latest Trumpcare text from the Senate shows Republicans are just making this monstrous bill worse.  Somehow, Republicans have devised an even grimmer future for Americans with pre-existing conditions.  
“With or without the Cruz Amendment, Trumpcare fundamentally means higher costs, millions losing coverage, key protections gutted, a crushing age tax, and stealing from Medicaid.  Republicans are trying to inflict unspeakable suffering for hard-working families across America, with especially crushing consequences for veterans, seniors with long-term care needs, and rural America. 
“Republicans need to stop ignoring the voices of their constituents and the stories of the families who will be devastated by Trumpcare.  Democrats in Congress and across the country will keep turning up the heat to defeat Trumpcare once and for all.”
