06 Mar American Health Care Act, One Year Later
A year after the introduction of the American Health Care Act, the GOP continues sabotaging health care
LAS VEGAS — Today is the one-year anniversary of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), the GOP’s attempt at repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act. Battle Born Progress Executive Director Annette Magnus released the following statement:
“One year ago today, congressional Republicans introduced the horrible and dangerous American Health Care Act as a part of their war against health care. In the past twelve months, the attacks continue, putting the health of many at risk. If this bill would have passed, out-of-pocket costs for older Nevadans would have gone up by as much as $9,102 by 2026 and 138,100 Nevadans would have lost their coverage by 2026. Thankfully, this disastrous bill failed in the U.S. Senate but seeing as this war on health care will never end, we feel it necessary to remind people like Congressman Mark Amodei what this bill would have done to Nevadans. We also call on Amodei to step up and be a leader and stop this never-ending war on health care. ”
