WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Johnson highlighted a new report that shows that the radical Graham-Cassidy Trumpcare bill would explode premiums for Americans with pre-existing conditions by as much as tens of thousands of dollars.
“With this extreme version of Trumpcare, Republicans are waging a war on people with pre-existing conditions,” said Rep. Johnson. “Americans with asthma or arthritis, cancer, diabetes or depression or even pregnancy can be slapped with towering premiums. We all have a loved one who has struggled with an illness; forcing those innocent people to pay tens of thousands of dollars just for having a pre-existing condition is utterly cruel. I stand with the people of Georgia to fight this immoral bill.”
“Trumpcare means devastation for American families: higher costs, less coverage, key protections gutted, a crushing age tax and stealing from Medicaid,” said Rep. Johnson. “Republicans must stop attacking the health and pocketbooks of veterans, seniors, women, working families, people with pre-existing conditions and rural communities, just to pursue their agenda of tax cuts for the high-end. Democrats are all hands on deck to defeat the moral monstrosity of Trumpcare.”
