Dingell Statement on President Trump’s Executive Order Sabotaging the ACA
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) released the following statement on President Trump’s executive order that rolls back health coverage protections for millions of Americans.
“This executive order is the most extreme and blatant attempt yet to undermine and sabotage the Affordable Care Act and cause instability in the marketplace. Under the President’s plan, insurers will once again be allowed to offer junk policies that provide no coverage at all, taking us back to a time when Americans were one serious illness or injury away from bankruptcy.
“The American people are demanding real solutions to the challenges facing our health care system. Rather than increasing costs and gutting protections for those with pre-existing conditions, President Trump and Congressional Republicans should come together with Democrats to stabilize the marketplace, bring down costs and extend quality, affordable coverage to more families. This is what the American people demand and it is what they deserve.”
