The Senators behind Graham-Cassidy issued a statement warning that it is not a matter if their deadly legislation replaces Obamacare, but when it will replace Obamacare.
Sens. Graham, Cassidy, Heller, and Johnson issued the following statement:
32 million people are projected to lose their health insurance under Graham-Cassidy. 130 million people with preexisting conditions would see their insurance premiums skyrocket. A study found that 41,600 additional Americans would die each year due to a lack of healthcare coverage under Graham-Cassidy.
Graham-Cassidy is opposed by every sector of the healthcare industry including the insurance companies.
It is a terrible piece of legislation that deserves to die and never be seen again. The Republican statement demonstrates that the GOP is on a mission to destroy the US healthcare system. They don’t care what the legislation does or doesn’t do. They don’t care who they hurt. The goal is to say that they got rid of Obamacare.
Graham-Cassidy is a nightmare, and Senate Republicans aren’t going to stop until it harms hundreds of millions of Americans.
