LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Angus King (I-Maine) released the following statement in response to the Congressional Budget Office’s preliminary score of the Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill:
"Today’s CBO report on the previous version of Graham-Cassidy does nothing to alleviate concerns raised in outside studies that the plan will hurt Maine people. The latest version – which the CBO will not score before the September 30th deadline – is merely an attempt to use small, short-term gains to hide the fact that Graham-Cassidy’s plan to cap Medicaid would have severe long-term consequences for Maine’s aging population and our rural hospitals, in addition to threatening affordable access to coverage for millions of Americans."
