WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sens. John Kennedy (R-La.) and Dr. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) announced today that the latest version of the health care bill corrects a funding issue that would have treated Louisiana unfairly compared to other states.
“This unfair treatment would have cost Louisiana $2 billion in health care funding. This was a legitimate issue that needed to be fixed, and I’m pleased to say it has been,” said Sen. Kennedy. “Now we can focus on creating a health care system that actually works.”
“The problem with Obamacare is that it picks winners and losers. As we repeal and replace Obamacare we need to do so with something that is fair to all Americans. This draft resolves a Louisiana specific issue and I look forward to working to ensure it meets all of President Trump’s goals,” said Sen. Cassidy.
