Tom Perez on Trump’s Executive Order to Sabotage Americans’ Health Care

In response to President Trump signing an executive order that would continue his sabotage of health insurance markets across the country, DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:

“Donald Trump is signing away Americans’ right to quality, affordable health care. This loophole will undermine protections for people with pre-existing conditions and raise premiums for those who need affordable health care the most. Instead of letting Americans suffer from Trump’s recklessness, Republicans should put an end to their party’s efforts to sabotage our health care system.

“Democrats believe health care is a right, not a privilege – and so do the American people. It’s time for Republicans to join us as we work to build on the progress of the Affordable Care Act and improve our health care system for all Americans.”
