MADISON - Last evening, Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans proudly introduced a plan to throw millions of Americans off their health care and make health care more expensive for millions more. The real winners are the wealthy and insurance company CEOs who are set to benefit from the huge tax giveaways baked into the bill.
"No wonder Speaker Paul Ryan's caucus has been trying to hide this plan - it's worse than any American family thought it would be," Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Brandon Weathersby said on Tuesday. "Speaker Ryan and President Trump lied to us. This bill costs more money, insures fewer people, and provides big payouts to CEOs and insurance companies while leaving families and seniors in the dust."
Here are the facts on the plan revealed by House Republicans last night:
"It took six years for Republicans to write a bill that focuses on huge tax giveaways for the super wealthy more than increasing access to affordable health care for American families," said Weathersby. "This is a more of the same chaos, uncertainty, and half-baked ideas from Speaker Ryan's House and the Trump administration."
