TODAY: IDP Chairman to host press call on updated CBO score for GOP health care overhaul

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody will host a press call on the latest Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score of the impact of the House-passed Republican health care bill today, Wednesday, May 24 at 3:25 p.m. ET.

The CBO has announced it will release an updated score today detailing the expected impact of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), which passed the House earlier this month with the support of only congressional Republicans, including Congressmen Rokita and Messer. After repeatedly promising that any health care bill would be passed in a transparent fashion, House Republicans passed their bill without waiting for a CBO score on their updated proposal. A CBO score on an earlier version of AHCA showed it would strip roughly 365,500 Hoosiers of their healthcare over 10 years.

WHO: Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody

WHAT: Press call on new budget score for Republicans’ health care overhaul

WHEN: TODAY, Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at 3:25 p.m. ET

RSVP: Media interested in participating should call Will Baskin-Gerwitz at (317) 762-9989 or email him at wgerwitz@indems.org for call-in information.
