Michigan Unions: CBO Score Shows ‘Trumpcare’ Bad for Michigan Families

LANSING – The Michigan AFL-CIO issued the following statement today on the Congressional Budget Office Score of the ‘Trumpcare’ legislation:

“This is a broken promise, plain and simple” said Ron Bieber, president of the Michigan AFL-CIO. “Trump promised the American people ‘we’re going to have insurance for everybody,’ but today’s CBO score shows that ‘Trumpcare’ would take health coverage away from 24 million Americans by 2026. That’s bad for families and bad for the whole nation. It means working people will pay more and get less. Michigan’s congressional delegation – including Mike Bishop, Tim Walberg, Dave Trott, and Jack Bergman – should do what’s best for Michigan’s working families and vote to kill this dangerous legislation.”
