Cicilline Statement on Trumpcare’s Potential Impact on Jobs

Monday, March 20, 2017

WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman and Democratic Policy and Communications Committee Co-Chair David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement after the Center for American Progress released a new analysis concluding that Trumpcare will eliminate 1.8 million American jobs by 2022:

“Trumpcare is a great deal if you’re wealthy. It’s a great deal if you’re an insurance company. But it’s a bad deal for working men and women across this country. This new report outlines exactly what will happen to the middle class if Republicans pass Trumpcare into law. Nearly two million jobs will be gone. And it will be even more difficult for hardworking families to get ahead. The American people deserve better.”


“During his Inauguration, Donald Trump promised to listen to ‘the forgotten men and women of our country.’ It took less than two months for him to break that promise. Trumpcare will destroy nearly two million jobs, end insurance coverage for millions more, require working people to pay higher costs for less coverage, and give the wealthiest Americans a huge tax cut.”


“More Americans than ever support the Affordable Care Act and the benefits it provides. Republicans have been throwing a tantrum over Obamacare for seven years now. It’s time for them to grow up and accept that the American people want to keep this law.”
