DNC on Trump’s Latest Attempt to Undermine the ACA

In response to the Trump administration’s announcement that they are promoting the use of short-term junk insurance plans, DNC spokesperson Daniel Wessel released the following statement:

“This is the latest attempt by the Trump administration to sabotage health care for millions of Americans across the country. By promoting skimpier short-term health plans, Trump will once again undermine the Affordable Care Act, including its requirements to cover people with pre-existing conditions, and could cause premiums to increase for people who rely on the comprehensive plans offered in the ACA marketplace. Instead of continuing to hurt Americans, Trump should join Democrats in working to increase access to affordable health care coverage.”
