Newest Target of GOP Health Care Sabotage: Employer-Based Coverage

By January 15, 2018No Comments

In response to the New York Times revealing  that the GOP’s next health care sabotage scheme would remove the requirement that ensures employers with over 50 employees provide health care to their employees, Protect Our Care Campaign Director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement:

“Most Americans get their health insurance through their employer but Republicans want to let employers off the hook to provide it. The latest scheme from Congressional Republicans is to allow employers to no longer provide insurance and force people to deal with the consequences on their own.

“While they wait to force through their full health care repeal legislation, they continue to sabotage the system and employer-based coverage is the newest front. After they gave billions in tax breaks to wealthy corporations, maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that they want to let those same corporations cancel their health care policies for employees.

“Enough is enough is enough. It’s time for Republicans to stop their war on America’s health care.”
