The CBO’s analysis of this shameful bill confirms what we already knew – it’s a bad deal for North Texas families.
The so-called Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 gives millionaires a major tax cut and sends premiums soaring for hardworking North Texas families, forcing them to pay so much more for far less care. This is a terrible bill for expectant mothers, children, seniors, those with disabilities, and the 324,000 individuals with pre-existing conditions in TX-32.
Unless you think America does too much for poor people, seniors, and the disabled — and not enough for millionaires and billionaires — you should oppose this bill.
The Congressional Budget Office produces independent cost estimates of proposed legislation to help Americans understand the economic effects of a particular bill. Today’s report on the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 found that the bill would rip healthcare from 15 million people by 2018 and deprive 22 million of care by 2026.
A growing list of patient and medical professional groups have come out against the bill. Today, the American Medical Association joined the American Heart Association, United Way, the American Lung Association, the American Psychological Association, and the American Academy of Family Physicians in opposing the Better Care Reconciliation Act.
