Sen. Hirono: GOP Health Care Bill a ‘Trillion Dollar Tax Break’ for the Wealthy

‘— While they are hurting the poorest, sickest and oldest Americans’

EXCERPT:

HIRONO: "Well, we’ve been focusing on just alerting everybody all across the country, and I personally have heard from thousands of people from Hawaii who have a pretty good idea what is probably going to be in the Senate bill because they looked at what’s in the House bill. And the House bill is basically a trillion dollar tax break for the richest people in our country while they are hurting the poorest, sickest and oldest Americans. They pretty much have figured it out but we’ll see the details and whatever the Senate can come up with, Senate Republicans can come up with, it will be devastating to a lot of people in our country."
