DNC on CBO Confirming Trump’s Health Care Sabotage
September 14, 2017
In response to today’s Congressional Budget Office report of health insurance subsidies, DNC deputy communications director Adrienne Watson released the following statement:
“Today’s CBO report confirms that Trump’s health care sabotage is limiting access to health care for Americans across the country. By hindering Affordable Care Act outreach through funding cuts and creating uncertainty in the market place, Trump is causing premiums to increase and stifling enrollment in 2018 and beyond.
“This new report gives further evidence that the Affordable Care Act is not collapsing under its own weight, as Republicans want everyone to believe. Instead of continuing to sabotage the ACA, it’s time for Trump to announce that he will permanently fund cost sharing subsidies and join Democrats and the vast majority of Americans who want to work to make the ACA better, not worse.”
