Cassidy Statement on CLASS Act Repeal

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congressman Bill Cassidy, M.D. released the following statement regarding the repeal of the Community Living Assistance Services and Support (CLASS) program:

"Today, the House of Representatives repealed the CLASS Act and took a step towards real health care reform. Although the CLASS Act attempted to address a real need, which is to give access to long term care coverage, its structure was so flawed that it could not deliver on its stated goal. In reality, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office said it would have eventually added tens of billions of dollars to our national deficit - making the CLASS program unsustainable. With CLASS now repealed, it's time to focus on real health care reforms that will truly address long-term care issues, reduce costs and improve care."
