BREAKING: CBO Report Shows Lance Voted for Health Care Bill That Would Leave 24 MILLION MORE Uninsured
Today, the Congressional Budget Office released its analysis of the Republican health care bill and it’s clear that it drives costs up and coverage down – all while giving tax breaks to millionaires and health insurance CEO’s. The CBO estimates that it would cause 24 million Americans to lose their health insurance coverage by 2026. An estimated 14 million people could lose coverage as soon as next year.
This nonpartisan analysis makes clear that despite their bold promises, Republicans never truly intended to replace the Affordable Care Act with a viable alternative, reduce the cost of health insurance, or protect access to affordable health care for working families and seniors.
Representative Lance already voted to pass this reckless bill in his role as a member of the House Energy & Commerce Committee. Now Lance owns this destructive bill and all its devastating consequences for New Jersey families.
“Representative Lance promised to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, with lower costs and more coverage. Instead, the most trusted nonpartisan analysis has clarified that 24 million Americans would lose their coverage under this Republican plan,” said DCCC spokesperson Evan Lukaske. “Now Lance will have to own the consequences of voting for this disastrous bill.”
