Adams Statement on Newest GOP Healthcare Plan
Charlotte, NC—Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement after reports that House Republicans will add radical new provisions to raise health care costs on Americans with pre-existing conditions and seek to hold a vote on TrumpCare next week:
“This latest proposal is a desperate and last minute attempt to save TrumpCare,” said Congresswoman Adams. “Republicans are putting their egos ahead of our healthcare and that is unacceptable. TrumpCare means higher costs and less coverage; it will gut key protections and add a crushing tax burden for American families. In short, President Trump's plan places profits before people and will put affordable healthcare out of reach for millions of hardworking Americans."
“The people have spoken and the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land. Congress should be working together to strengthen and improve the ACA - not tear it down.”
