Press Release

(Washington, DC) - House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) released the following statement after the bipartisan Congressional Budget Office found that Medicaid funding would be slashed by 35 percent over 10 years under the Senate Republicans' Trumpcare health care repeal plan:

"If Americans needed any further confirmation that Republicans are only looking out for the rich in their health care repeal efforts, this is it. Cutting Medicaid funding would hurt the hardest-working Americans and families who most depend on Medicaid to ensure their health and financial stability. This is a cruel measure and I will continue to fight against Trumpcare to protect my constituents and all Americans."
