Gov. Cooper on Cassidy-Graham Health Care Legislation

RALEIGH

RALEIGH: Governor Roy Cooper released the following statement in response to the health care legislation introduced by Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham:

“The latest proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act may be even worse than previous proposals: raising premiums, weakening protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and slashing over $1 billion from North Carolina’s Medicaid program. North Carolina’s middle-class families will be worse off if this passes.

“Senate Republicans in Washington must work with Democrats to reach a bipartisan solution that expands health care coverage and makes it better.”
