LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) issued the following statement in response to the release today of the new Senate health care bill:
“This bill is no more encouraging than the last, which is to say it’s still terrible. It still includes drastic cuts to Medicaid that will hurt Maine seniors, children, and people with disabilities. It still shifts costs to the states. It still has inadequate funding for opioid treatment, and now, by presenting barebones plans, it’s going to drive up the cost of insurance for older, sicker people and likely put health care out of reach for them. None of this is good for Maine."
