Email to Rep. Lee Zeldin from Bruce Colbath:
Mr. Zeldin: I just read an article in the Riverhead press concerning your position, or lack thereof, on the AHCA. Why are you repeating the GOP mantra that the CBO opined that premiums would go down by 10% by 2026? The premium decrease is based on what the CBO predicts the premiums would be under “existing law”, namely the ACA. You’re practicing deception, pure and simple.
Fundamentally, there is no humane reason for any elected official to support this bill. It will devastate health care in this country, and particularly in CD1. If you will not vote your conscience and protect your constituents, but plan to do as Mr. Trump and Mr. Ryan ask, I can only hope that you pay for this in November 2018.
