PATRIOTIC MILLIONAIRES RELEASE STATEMENT ON AHCA CBO SCORE

 

Washington, DC – This afternoon, following the Congressional Budget Office’s scoring of the American Health Care Act, the Patriotic Millionaires released the following statement:

 

“The CBO score proves what we already knew: Trumpcare is a tax cut for millionaires disguised as a health care bill.”

 

The Patriotic Millionaires have aggressively lobbied for months against this “healthcare” bill, which will take care away from some of the most sick and vulnerable Americans to pay for a tax cut for those who need it least. This CBO score, predicting that 23 million Americans will lose health insurance over the next decade, only confirms what was already clear: the supporters of the AHCA have disturbingly misplaced priorities. As wealthy Americans who would prefer living in a healthy society over yet another tax cut for millionaires, the Patriotic Millionaires have spoken out time and time again to say they neither need nor want another tax cut, especially one that comes at the expense of American lives. Their voices have been featured in outlets such as the Wisconsin Gazette, Forbes, The Tennessean, The Hill, the Lebanon Democrat, and Politicus USA.
