Congresswoman Adams Statement on the GOP Plan to Make America Sick Again

Mar 7, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C.—Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement after Congressional Republicans announced their healthcare plan intended to replace the Affordable Care Act.

“The GOP bill fails working Americans,” said Congresswoman Adams. “Families should not be forced to choose between putting food on their tables and affording quality healthcare.

“This bill terminates the Medicaid expansion thereby stripping 11 million Americans of insurance, raises costs while decreasing coverage for working families, and forces seniors to pay premiums that are five times higher than their current rates. Instead of proposing legislation that hurts the middle class, Republicans should be working to improve coverage for all Americans by strengthening and expanding the Affordable Care Act.”
