Who voted for the Health Care Bill


AARP opposes act it calls an ‘age tax’ on older Americans

AARP – June 2017

The U.S. House of Representatives on May 4, 2017 passed the American Health Care Act by a razor-thin margin: 217 to 213. It includes an “age tax” that AARP says would add as much as $13,000 to the cost of insurance for those 50 to 64, and would discriminate against people with preexisting health conditions such as cancer and diabetes. What’s more, we believe it would cause millions of Americans to lose coverage and put Medicare in worse financial shape, according to AARP.

That’s just a partial list of what we believe is wrong with the legislation, which is now under Senate consideration. AARP promised to hold members of Congress accountable if they voted for this bill.

Here they are for the state of Michigan:

MI-1 Jack Bergman

MI-2 Bill Huizenga

MI-3 Justin Amash

MI-4 John Moolenaar

MI-6 Fred Upton

MI-7 Tim Walberg

MI-8 Mike Bishop

MI-10 Paul Mitchell

MI-11 Dave Trott
