Better Care Act Wrong Choice for Michigan, America

LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Primary Care Association’s Chief Executive Officer, Loretta V. Bush, issued the following statement in response to the Congressional Budget Office’s scoring of the Better Care Act: 

“The Better Care Act is a deeply troubling piece of legislation that flies in the face of industry experts as well as the will of the American people. It doesn’t fix the Affordable Care Act. Instead, it largely focuses on dismantling the Medicaid program — the most successful, cost-effective and widely used benefit program in existence. The Congressional Budget Office makes it clear: if passed, the Better Care Act will harm millions of people. 

“If the health center movement has taught us anything, it’s that bipartisan solutions to our national health care challenge are possible. Congress must put people first and focus on strengthening access to preventive care and affordable coverage.”
