“Thanks to victories across the country, Democrats in Congress will be in a better position to stand up for your kids, your parents, your neighbors, your friends. Congressional Republicans have a choice to make: continue down their path of sabotage or work with us to lower health care costs and expand access to quality care.”

Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL), Co-Chair of the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, delivered this week’s Democratic Weekly Address:

Congresswoman Bustos:

[The Washington Republicans are] calling it the American Health Care Act: the AHCA. But they should call it the BBBA: the Big Breaks for Billionaires Act. That’s because you pay more, you get less, while billionaires get all the breaks. […]

For seven years now, Washington Republicans guaranteed they’d repeal and replace.

Well, this week, they were finally forced to put their cards on the table.

And it turns out they’ve been bluffing.

Because when you get past the smoke and mirrors of President Trump’s repeal plan, it’s clear they’ve dealt America a bad hand. […]

It means raiding 170 billion dollars from the Medicare Trust Fund, shortening the solvency of this vital lifeline for our seniors by three years. It means putting rural hospitals and small clinics on life support.

And it means taking coverage away from about 10 million Americans – including tens of thousands of farmers, factory workers and hardworking families across Illinois!

Just like Trump University, their bill is a scam designed to rip off folks like you.
