3affordable care, and discriminate against trusted health care providers.
AJR30,1,74 Whereas, the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation has determined that
5Republican plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act will deliver approximately $157
6billion in tax cuts to those with annual incomes over $1 million in the coming decade;
AJR30,1,118 Whereas, Speaker Paul Ryan and Congressional Republicans have unveiled a
9health care plan that will increase health care costs for older Americans, allowing
10health insurance companies to assess premiums on seniors at a rate five times higher
11than that assessed on younger Americans; and
AJR30,2,212 Whereas, estimates from the Congressional Budget Office indicate the proposal
13will increase the number of uninsured Americans by 24 million and the Center on

1states, which reduces access to affordable health care and increases cost to states by
2capping Medicaid expenditures; and
