Collapse of Trumpcare is a Victory for America
July 18, 2017
WASHINGTON—Third Way released the following statement from Gabe Horwitz, Vice President of the Economic Program:
"The collapse of Trumpcare is a victory for America. Had the latest version of the Republican health care bill passed, it would have caused catastrophic disruptions in health care coverage and services for tens of millions of Americans. Millions would be left without coverage, people with pre-existing conditions would have faced discrimination, and premiums would have jumped higher due to unstable markets.
"By staying united around the core tenets and values that went into Obamacare, Democrats have halted the seven-year campaign by Republicans to repeal it. But the fight is not over. Majority Leader McConnell now has vowed to push for a vote on repealing Obamacare without replacing it. Democrats should oppose this terrible idea. But as important, they should be prepared to offer and support immediate fixes to Obamacare."
