Over 470,000 Missourians Could Lose Healthcare With #Trumpcare

“GOP leaders delayed the vote on Trumpcare today because they’re already feeling the backlash from their constituents. But it will only get worse,” said American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp.

“Trumpcare would decimate health care across the country, kicking millions off their insurance and raising costs for millions more. In Missouri, the Senate Republican bill would kick over 300,000 people off of Medicaid and strip over 170,000 of their private insurance. No family in America should have to choose between essential health care and bankruptcy, but if this bill becomes law, tens of thousands of Missouri families might. Missourians deserve better.”
