California’s Educators Denounce U.S. House OK of Bill Threatening Vital Health Benefits for Nation’s Students and Families

BURLINGAME – Eric C. Heins, president of the 325,000-member California Teachers Association, issued this statement today about the narrow approval by the U.S. House of Representatives of the American Health Care Act that would gut vital parts of the Affordable Care Act:

“California’s educators feel today as many Americans do now that Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives just rushed to narrowly and blindly pass a dangerously flawed bill that will threaten the health care of millions of students and families. We stand with groups such as the American Medical Association, American Cancer Society and AARP in opposing this ‘Trumpcare’ scheme that would also allow insurance companies to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions and is projected to increase insurance premiums for thousands of middle-class families. We urge the U.S. Senate to reject this morally bankrupt bill that eliminates health care for more than 24 million people, while giving massive tax cuts to the rich. It also puts essential health benefits such as maternity and newborn care, dental and vision care for kids, and mental health care at risk.”
