Pelosi Statement on Trump Administration New Rule Undermining Americans’ Health Care
Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Trump Administration finalized a rule to expand shoddy Association Health Plans that allow employers to skirt consumer protections and limit coverage for Americans with pre-existing conditions:
“Today’s rule is yet another sign that Republicans will never abandon their relentless assault on Americans with pre-existing conditions. Once again, Republicans are trying to revive the monstrosity of Trumpcare’s cruelest provisions and create a dark future of free-wheeling discrimination against millions of children, parents and seniors with pre-existing conditions. The Republican agenda means surging new health costs and dismantled health protections for those who need them most.
“The American people cannot afford the Republican raw deal on health care. Democrats are working to improve and update the Affordable Care Act, reduce health costs for everyone and offer A Better Deal to lower prescription drug costs for families.”
