There is no getting around it: Trump lied about health care.
The numbers on the GOP health care repeal bill are in: 24 million people pushed off health care by 2026, according to the Congressional Budget Office. This bill would kill tens of thousands of people a year.
With the CBO data and a firestorm of opposition, Republican House members are starting to say they’ll vote no.
Donald Trump lied when he promised, “We’re going to have insurance for everybody.” He also lied when he swore he wouldn’t cut Medicaid or Medicare. There’s no way to fix this cruel, terrible bill.
If the Republicans really wanted to improve our health care, they would open Medicare to everyone. They would have Medicare negotiate lower prices with drug corporations.
We want health care for every person in the country. We should demand nothing less.
Thank you for being a health care champion,
