Rep. Kind’s Statement on Health Care Repeal Bill
The House Ways & Means Committee, which Rep. Kind serves on, will review the House Republican health care repeal bill. Below is Rep. Kind’s statement on the bill:
“I am deeply disappointed that House Republican leadership is pushing forward with a bill to repeal the ACA that lacks transparency, debate, and any information about what it will cost American taxpayers. What is clear about the bill is that it will put Medicare in jeopardy, raise insurance premiums for Wisconsinites, jeopardize access to care in rural areas, and result in loss of coverage for thousands of people.
“It will also provide the wealthiest citizens an average yearly tax cut of around $195,000 at the expense of most Wisconsinites who will end up paying more for less coverage. Instead, we should recognize what works in healthcare, fix what doesn’t work, and seek to lower healthcare costs for all American.”
