Hoeven Statement on CBO Score for House Health Care Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator John Hoeven released the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its score for the House of Representatives’ health care legislation:

“Obamacare has raised costs and limited health care choices for Americans. Our goal for health care reform is to provide Americans with access to patient-centered health care, and health insurance at an affordable cost with more choice and competition. We are writing our own health care bill in the Senate and I believe we need to focus on enhancing the refundable tax credits for low-income individuals, ensuring that reforms to Medicaid work for providers and those who rely on the program, and making sure that those with chronic illnesses and pre-existing conditions have access to affordable health coverage.”
