Schumer: The GOP Health Care Bill Is ‘Rotten at the Core’

‘The American people are not for big tax breaks to the wealthiest of Americans, nor are they for dramatically cutting their health care’

EXCERPT:

SCHUMER: "The truth is, as CBO made clear yesterday, the Republicans cannot excise the rotten core at the center of their health care bill. No matter what tweaks they may add in the next week and a half, no matter how the bill changes around the edges, it is fundamentally flawed at the center. The American people don’t want Medicaid slashed. They don’t want help -- they don't want the help they need to fight opioid addiction, to help their parents in nursing homes, to help those with preexisting conditions, and just to help the average person who needs good health care. 

The American people don’t want all that changed and eliminated. The Republican bill is rotten at the core. The American people are not for big tax breaks to the wealthiest of Americans, nor are they for dramatically cutting their health care. That’s why the bill has about 17 percent popularity in America and even Trump voters don’t like it."
