Sen. Warren: Republicans Don't Have A Health Bill, They Have A "Tax Cut For Billionaires Bill"


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took to the Senate floor Monday evening as part of Democrats' opposition to the GOP health care plan. "This is straight up trade. The Senate Republicans say that Americans should cut health insurance for little babies, or seniors in nursing homes, or for people getting treatment for opiod addiction," Warren said. "All so that millionaires and billionaires can get their tax cuts. That is not a health care bill, it is a statement of values."

"There is only one word for what the Senate Republicans are ding with this bill: Shameful."

"The Republican negotiate behind closed doors in secret, they refuse to let anyone see the bill, they won't tell anyone what is in it... What's going on here? I'll tell you what's going on. Senate Republicans don't dare let the people back home see this bill. They dot dare let voters see this bill. Instead they've decided to ram this bill through... and get it signed into law. They hope that once that's done... everyone else will just give up," he continued.

"I've got news for Senate Republicans: That's not going to happen... We don't care how long we have to stand up here... Democrats are here to keep demanding that you show us this bill, and we are going to keep insisting that you account for its shameful contents."
