Too bad Republican priorities do not include the American people

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement after House Republicans passed Trumpcare by a vote of 217 to 213.

“This so-called health care plan is a disaster. The reality is that under Trumpcare, 24 million Americans could lose their health insurance and it will likely remove protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Older Americans are going to pay up to 5 times more than others for their health care. On top of that is $600 billion in tax cuts to the wealthiest in this country, insurance companies, and Big Pharma. That’s what the Republicans in Congress and President Trump are all about. Those are their priorities. Unfortunately, the American people did not make that list.”
