Miami Beach, FL—U.S. Conference of Mayors President New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu issued the following statement in response to the Congressional Budget Office’s score of the Senate Healthcare bill:

“The bottom line is that this bill will make us sicker,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu of New Orleans, President of the US Conference of Mayors. “A bill that rips insurance away from 22 million people and guts Medicaid is bad for hospitals and clinics in America’s cities, which will once again be filled with sick, uninsured residents. Furthermore, this will set our local budgets back and hurt the economy.”
