Republican Health Care Bill Threatens Rural Hospitals and the Older Americans and Economies They Support
WASHINGTON, D.C.--Today, U.S. Senators Bob Casey (D-Pa), Ranking Member of the Senate Special Committee on Aging and Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Ranking Member of the Joint Economic Committee released a joint report, “TrumpCare Threatens Rural Hospitals,” outlining the devastating impact that the Republican health care plan would have on rural hospitals.
“This plan is a two-fold attack on rural communities,” Sen. Casey said. “First, it rips health care protections away from millions of Americans. Then, by eliminating vital funding, it threatens hundreds of health care jobs and jeopardizes access to services that are particularly critical to seniors living in rural areas. I will not sit by idly as Republicans attempt to undermine health care protections simply to offer tax breaks to the most elite among us.”
