Senate Trumpcare Bill Just as Heartless and Harmful as House Bill

PAINTED POST, N.Y. – Congressional candidate Rick Gallant issued the following statement on the Trumpcare discussion draft released by Senate Republicans Thursday:

“Senate Republicans have finally revealed their previously secret draft of Trumpcare, which is just as heartless and harmful as the House version. Trumpcare will increase already high health costs for New York families and kick an estimated 68,300 in the district off of their health coverage. It also guts key protections for patients, adds a crushing age tax, and steals money from Medicare, all to allow a tax cut for the wealthiest Americans. Representative Tom Reed voted for Trumpcare and he will be held accountable for its effects on regular hardworking American people.”
