U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released an updated score for the American Health Care Act (AHCA): 

“CBO scores are important but not critical – they’re merely one projection of what might happen. Today’s score only reflects a portion of the actions we are taking to fix our broken health care system. According to a new report from the Department of Health and Human Services, premiums in Michigan increased by 90 percent for those on Obamacare’s Individual Market. That’s unacceptable. Now that the AHCA has moved to the Senate, I’m hopeful they can build on our efforts to bring down premiums and increase access to quality health care. We must continue to take constructive action to fix this broken system.”
