Government Watching Criticizes Trump’s ACA Sabotage That Is Hurting Americans Across The Country
August 23, 2018
Today on Fox and Friends, Trump said what he is doing for health care was “incredible” and claimed his actions were bringing down health care premiums. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Trump continues to sabotage the Affordable Care Act and has caused premiums to increase across the country.
Today, the Government Accountability Office issued a report that said, instead of undermining the ACA, the Trump administration needs to step up and do more to help people enroll in insurance plans.
Associated Press: “A congressional watchdog said the Trump administration needs to step up its management of sign-up seasons for former President Barack Obama’s health care law after mixed results last year in the throes of a failed GOP effort to repeal it.”
Here are real stories of Americans hurt by Trump’s continued health care sabotage and the skyrocketing health care premiums he’s causing:
“This is all just maintaining his health, where it's at, and unfortunately it does cost a lot of money.” – North Dakota mom whose son has congenital heart disease.
