Protect Our Care Statement on Reports Trump is Canceling CSR Payments

By October 13, 2017No Comments

In response to news reports tonight that the Trump administration plans to cancel funding the cost-sharing-reduction payments — a part of the Affordable Care Act — Protect Our Care Campaign Director Brad Woodhouse made the following statement.

“The President of the United States is now running a daily campaign to sabotage the health care of the American people. Nonpartisan analysts say canceling these payments means making people pay 20% higher premiums.

“The Trump administration and every Republican in Congress who lets him do this, is now responsible for every rate hike people see for the foreseeable future. They broke it, they own it.”
