DNC on Trump’s Latest ACA Sabotage
In response to the Trump administration’s new guidance encouraging states to skirt the ACA’s current income and coverage standards for federal health insurance subsidies, DNC spokesperson Daniel Wessel released the following statement:
“Despite the fact that voters overwhelmingly rejected Republicans’ health care sabotage in the midterm elections, Trump just took one of his most extreme steps yet to undermine the Affordable Care Act. The Trump administration’s new guidance undermines the law’s protections that currently help millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions obtain affordable coverage, and it could put health care out of reach for families across the country.
“While Republicans have made it clear they have no interest in protecting Americans’ health care, Democrats will continue to fight to increase access and affordability so working families can get the care they need.”
