MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATS URGE BAKER TO HELP RELEASE SENATE TRUMPCARE BILL TO THE PUBLIC
BOSTON – Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford released the following statement in response to Governor Charlie Baker’s trip to Washington D.C. today to lobby Congress on healthcare reform legislation while Senate Republicans continue to draft their version of Trumpcare in secret, as reported in today’s New York Times:
“When he meets with Senate staff, Governor Baker should get a copy of the secret Senate bill and make it public so that the people who elected him know how much damage they can expect if it passes.
“The Governor is a healthcare expert, and it’s time for him to confront the members of his own party about how dangerous Trumpcare is for Massachusetts and the nation.”
