Senator Hassan Statement on CBO Report That Shows Trumpcare Would Lead to Premium Hikes, Especially for Older Americans

WASHINGTON - Senator Maggie Hassan released the following statement on the Congressional Budget Office's report showing that Trumpcare would lead to huge premium hikes, with older Americans experiencing "substantial" hikes:

"Today's report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office confirms that Trumpcare would lead to huge premium hikes for Granite Staters and people across America. According to the CBO, if you buy your own health insurance, under Trumpcare your premiums will go up by an average of 15-20% over the next two years, and premium increases will be even worse if you are between the ages of 50-65. Meanwhile, health insurance CEOs will receive a new tax break as hard-working Granite Staters see their premiums spike and 24 million Americans lose their coverage. I will continue to fight back against this misguided Trumpcare legislation."
