Adams Statement on CBO Analysis of the Republican Bill to Repeal the Affordable Care Act
Charlotte, N.C.—Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) made the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released their analysis of the Republican bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
“The CBO report confirmed our worst fears-millions of Americans will lose their health coverage if the Republican bill to repeal the ACA is passed,” said Congresswoman Adams. “This bill fails working families by giving a tax break to the wealthy, increasing premiums, and ending Medicaid as we know it.
“By next year, an estimated 14 million people would be without health insurance and premiums would be an additional 15- 20 % higher. This is unacceptable. Instead of playing politics with our healthcare, the GOP should be working to build on the progress of the ACA and not moving backward.”
