Northam Campaign Releases Map Showing County by County Impact of Trumpcare
Refusing to Share Stance on Senate Trumpcare Bill, Gillespie Implies that Health Care Is Not A State Issue
Richmond, Va. — Today, the Northam for Governor campaign released an interactive map showing the devastating impact the Senate health care bill will have on Virginia if it passes. The map provides a county by county visualization of the premium increases Virginians can expect, as well as the number of Medicaid enrollees who will likely be affected by the massive cuts outlined under Trumpcare.
Yet, Ed Gillespie continues to remain silent on whether he supports the Senate’s health care proposal, telling voters he is focused on state issues. With over 520,000 Virginians estimated to be at risk of losing their coverage under the legislation, and those who rely on substance abuse and mental health treatment through Medicaid, there is no bigger state issue facing the Commonwealth.
Ed Gillespie must clarify for Virginians once and for all whether he supports bringing Trumpcare to Virginia.
