TUNE IN: Rep. Khanna and Health Care Bill Hearing – watch online beginning 7:00 am Pacific
Washington, DC – House Budget Committee Member Rep. Ro Khanna (CA-17) will participate in a hearing today on the Republican’s replacement bill for the Affordable Care Act.
Watch the hearing online at 7:00 am Pacific / 10:00 am Eastern at http://budget.house.gov/hearingschedule/reconciliation-markup.htm. You can also watch on C-SPAN 2.
During the hearing, committee members will markup budget reconciliation submissions for the American Health Care Act. Rep. Khanna will speak to how the Republican bill impacts Medicare and Medicaid.
“Everyone believes we need to improve health care to expand coverage and lower costs, but Republicans in Congress are rushing through a massive tax break disguised as health care policy. The GOP’s plan would kick 24 million people off insurance and cut Medicaid by $880 billion, all for a $600 billion tax giveaway for the very wealthy and corporations,” said Rep. Khanna. “I am convinced that this ill-conceived and bureaucratic bill will help convince Americans that best solution for health care is also the simplest -- Medicare for all."
