House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi slammed congressional Republicans’ ObamaCare replacement bill as the “Make America Sick Again” act.
“Tonight, Republicans revealed a Make America Sick Again bill that hands billionaires a massive new tax break while shifting huge costs and burdens onto working families,” Pelosi said in statement, Fox News reports.
Playing off President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, Pelosi added that the Republicans’ remedy for the Affordable Care Act will push “millions of seniors and disabled Americans who depend on Medicaid coverage into the cold.”

Pelosi said the new American Health Care Act shows that Republicans have decided to make health care a “privilege of the wealthy” and not a right.
She also said those Americans with preexisting medical conditions will be adversely affected.
“The American people deserve to see what Republicans are trying to do to their healthcare,” Pelosi said.
After the bill was finalized, House leadership posted the bill at readthebill.gop.
