Durbin Statement on Senate Trumpcare

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement after Senate Republicans finally released their secret health care repeal bill:

Now we know why Senate Republicans kept this bill a secret for so long—it will take health insurance away from millions of Americans, and increase costs for Illinois seniors and families. The deep cuts to Medicaid are a disaster for downstate and Chicagoland areas as well. 

We need to stop this Republican health care repeal effort now that we know the devastating impact of their secret bill.
