U.S. Senate health care bill would be bad for Alabama

Arise Citizens' Policy Project executive director Kimble Forrister issued the following statement Thursday, June 22, 2017, in response to the release of the U.S. Senate's proposed health care bill:

"The Senate bill would be devastating for children, seniors, working families, and people with disabilities across Alabama. This mean-spirited plan would slash Medicaid and force millions of low- and middle-income Americans to pay more for insurance that covers less.
"Rural communities, older people, and folks with pre-existing conditions would suffer under the Senate plan, all for the sake of a massive tax cut for big corporations and wealthy households. The Senate bill is bad for Alabama and bad for America, and it deserves a swift defeat."
