Today’s vote in the House of Representatives to dismantle the Affordable Care Act sets the stage for massive disruption for hundreds of thousands of Connecticut families.
The bill they passed, the American Health Care Act:
- abandons Americans with pre-existing conditions,
- slashes Medicaid,
- attacks women’s access to reproductive health care,
- and raises health care costs for all families.
All this to give over $600 billion in tax breaks to the very wealthy and big insurance and drug companies.
The bill now moves to the Senate.
We will continue to fight for all Connecticut residents to have access to quality, affordable health care.
We want to thank our state’s five U.S. House members – Representatives Rosa DeLauro, Joe Courtney, Jim Himes, John Larson, and Elizabeth Esty – for standing up against this horrendous bill.
