Older Americans spared harmful impact of Graham-Cassidy health care bill

Posted on 09/26/17

WASHINGTON, DC—AARP Executive Vice President Nancy LeaMond today issued the following statement in response to the decision not to vote on the Graham-Cassidy health care bill.

“The Senate leadership’s decision to not bring the Graham-Cassidy bill up for a vote shows that the voices of the American people are very powerful. The bill would have increased costs, reduced coverage, and expanded the ranks of the uninsured by millions.

 “Instead of this harmful bill, we strongly urge Congress to find bipartisan solutions for the problems in our health care system. Older Americans and their families need health care they can afford and rely on.”
