Senator Schumer press statement on Cassidy Graham healthcare block grant bill

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York says that in listening to a proceeding regular break weekly press briefing by Republicans, they left out people and instead talked about the politics of a healthcare block grant bill sponsored by Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy in South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham that they do not seem to care how the legislation would affect the average American, just the latest unpopular version of Trumpcare. Schumer says they are struggling because their own Senators know the public dislikes the bill, calling it a sham crafted in the dark of night. Schumer says Republicans do not want to tell middle-class suburban families that its cuts made in Washington tell the states who to cut, not a neutral bill that evolves power and lets governors do the dirty work of cutting Medicaid as it is known. Schumer holds up a bipartisan letter sent to Congress by 10 governors who do not want Trumpcare 2.
