Today Mayor Mitch Landrieu issued the following statement on the Congressional Budget Office’s Analysis of the American Health Care Act:
“This nonpartisan analysis has confirmed our worst fears. President Trump is blatantly violating his campaign promise that more Americans would have better healthcare for less money. His proposal will strip 14 million of our most vulnerable citizens of the health care they need by 2018, while creating a massive tax break for the rich. It gets worse by 2020, with millions more losing healthcare coverage. It would be bad news for Louisiana's health, economy and budget."
