U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-Springfield) issued the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office’s released its analysis of House Republicans’ bill to repeal Americans’ health care, which estimates that 23 million people would lose coverage by 2026.

“No wonder the Republicans were afraid of the CBO analysis. Trumpcare 2.0 will still force millions of Americans to lose their health insurance, raise premiums, and put critical health care services beyond the reach of hard-working families. All of this to give a GOP tax cut to the wealthiest.”
