Rep. Bass on Trumpcare 2.0 Passage: “Know That Our Fight Continues”

May 4, 2017
Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement on the passage of Trumpcare in the House of Representatives.

“Today, the House of Representatives passed Trumpcare 2.0, forgetting those with pre-existing conditions in favor of a plan that won’t cover substance use treatment, mental health treatment, or maternity care. There’s no way to tell how much this will cost those living in my district, as House Republicans rushed the bill through without a final price score, but we do know that this bill will cost people their lives. The fate of our health care now rests in the Senate’s hands to protect hundreds of thousands of Californians and millions more Americans that stand to lose their coverage should the plan become law. Know that despite this setback, our fight continues.”
