Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement on the latest changes to Trumpcare:

"Republicans' dangerous tweaks to Trumpcare only worsen the crushing costs and cruelty their bill inflicts on millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions and working families everywhere.  Americans will face higher health costs, less coverage, key protections gutted, an age tax and the destruction of Medicaid.  Veterans, Americans fighting opioid addiction, and rural communities will still be devastated. 

"No last-minute changes can disguise the fundamentally rotten consequences of Trumpcare.  Republicans must stop making a dangerous bill even worse and join Democrats for constructive bipartisan progress to improve and update Americans' health care."
