Legislation will lead to 22 million losing health insurance, higher costs, less care

Upon the release of the CBO score of the Republican Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), business executive and non-profit leader Dan Kohl issued the following statement:

“This latest information from the nonpartisan CBO confirms what many of us already know: Republican healthcare legislation supported by Glenn Grothman will be a disaster for Wisconsinites. At least 22 million Americans may lose their health insurance, older Wisconsinites will be forced to pay an age tax, and hard-working lifamilies will face increasing premiums.

The CBO report makes clear: This is a tax cut for the rich masquerading as a healthcare bill. It’s mean, it will devastate Wisconsin families, and Grothman owns every word of this destructive bill.”
