“Families will go bankrupt. People will die,” Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted on Thursday after the House passed the measure and moved the issue into the Senate, which Republicans also control…
Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., argued Thursday on the House floor before the vote that “tens of thousands of Americans will die if this bill passes.”
“That’s a fact,” he also said.
Meanwhile, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee chairman who like Warren is considered a top 2016 presidential hopeful, told CNN: “People will die if this becomes the law of the land.”
