The Health 202: Claire McCaskill’s promise to save preexisting conditions could save her job

By Colby Itkowitz

Excerpt from the article:

Elizabeth Lower-Basch, director of income and work supports at the Center for Law and Social Policy, told The Health 202 that, “Director Cissna’s claim that the public charge regulation will only affect a ‘tiny’ number of people is deeply misleading. The proposal is a back-door attempt to rewrite our nation’s immigration laws, creating an unprecedented income test that a third or more of U.S. born citizens would fail. While only a limited number of non-citizens apply for a green card each year, these complicated new rules would ensure that millions more will be afraid to apply for food, health care, or housing programs that they or their citizen children are eligible for.”
