Protect Our Care Statement on Senate Health Care Repeal Bill

Jun 22, 2017

Statement from Protect Our Care Campaign Director Leslie Dach on the leaked draft of the Senate’s health care repeal bill:

“Senate Republicans promised to start over and write a plan that improves people’s health care. Instead they doubled down on the failed House repeal approach that puts everyone’s health care last, and tax breaks for the wealthy first. The heartless Senate health care repeal bill makes health care worse for everyone – it raises costs, cuts coverage, weakens protections and cuts even more from Medicaid than the mean House bill. They wrote their plan in secret and are rushing forward with a vote next week because they know how much harm their bill does to millions of people.”

Dach formerly served as a Senior Counselor at the Department of Health and Human Services in the Obama Administration.
