Health Care

WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 24, 2017)–Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement regarding the Congressional Budget Office (CBO)’s report on the American Health Care Act:

“We’re on a rescue mission, and today’s CBO report reinforces what we’ve said before — our American Health Care Act will lower premiums and reduce the deficit. The CBO report doesn’t tell the whole story when it comes to the benefits of this bill, but we’re one step closer to keeping our promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, which continues to fail. House Republicans want a better health care future for all Americans, and a system that puts the people — not the government — at the center. We will continue working on reforms that lower prices and give people meaningful choices to find health care coverage that meets their needs.”
