Adams Statement on CBO Report on 20-Year Trumpcare Medicaid Cuts
Washington, D.C. –Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office released its report on Trumpcare’s impacts on Medicaid over the next 20 years.
“Today’s Congressional Budget Office report reveals that Republicans pushing the passage of Trumpcare are hiding even more catastrophic damages than originally imagined,” said Congresswoman Adams. “Cutting Medicaid by 26% over the next ten years will devastate millions of seniors, veterans, and hardworking families; the increase to cuts, totaling 35% by 2036, will bring an end to the program as we know it causing rural hospitals to close and depriving the 39% of kids who rely upon it for medical care. We must continue vigorously fighting to defeat Trumpcare—American lives depend upon it.”
