Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Richard Neal (D-MA) today released the following statement after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a score of Senate Republicans’ updated health care bill:

“Congressional Republicans and President Trump have no idea what they want to do with their health care bill, other than exclude Democrats and continue to make this a partisan issue. And today, the CBO once again confirmed what the public has known all along: no matter how many times we see a different Republican health plan, we always get the same terrible result. Senate Republicans’ latest bill would take away health insurance from 22 million Americans. It’s time for Republicans to take a hint from the CBO and the American people, and join Democrats in working on solutions that will demonstrably improve health care for all Americans. When will Republicans finally wake up?”
