WASHINGTON, DCU.S. Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) issued the following statement this afternoon after House Republicans' Trumpcare bill to take health coverage away from 24 million Americans passed the House:

“Today Republicans jammed through a bill that's very wrong. It's a $600 billion tax cut for the wealthiest Americans which throws millions of people off their health care insurance. It raises costs and lowers care which is why patient groups including cancer survivors oppose it.”
