Tom Perez on Trump Proposal to Cut Access to Medicaid

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement in response to the Trump administration allowing states to impose Medicaid work requirements:

“Instead of improving access to care, Trump continues to sabotage our health care system by letting states make it more difficult for lower-income Americans and people with disabilities to get the care they need. This inhumane proposal is just another excuse to kick people off of their health insurance, and could actually make it harder for struggling Americans to find work. Health care is a right, not a privilege, and while Republicans work to penalize unemployed Americans, Democrats will continue fighting to expand access to care and help people find good-paying jobs.”
