“Republicans are advancing a health care plan that will increase costs, reduce coverage and kick 24 million Americans off their health care,” said Eddie Kurtz, executive director of Courage Campaign. “By taking a wrecking ball to the ACA, Republicans are creating a manufactured health care crisis in California and around the country. It is reckless, dangerous and above all else, shameful.”
