REP. KIHUEN: MY REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES SHOULD BE ASHAMED!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Ruben Kihuen released the statement below following the vote on the controversial American Health Care Act:
“Today, House Republicans shamefully voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would leave at least 24 million Americans uninsured by 2026. The American Health Care Act would gut billions of dollars from Medicaid and Medicare, give tax breaks to the rich, and put those with pre-existing conditions at risk.
“In Nevada’s Fourth Congressional District, rural communities will have less access to healthcare options, older Americans will face an “age tax,” paying premiums five times higher than what others pay, and families will have higher deductibles and increased out-of-pocket costs. My Republican colleagues should be ashamed, and I am disappointed they have sold out the American people.”
