Washington, DC — Today, Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) introduced the “Fair Indexing for Health Care Affordability Act,” legislation that would reverse the Trump administration’s rule change making fewer Americans eligible for premium tax credits provided by the Affordable Care Act and also significantly increasing their out-of-pocket costs in the process. Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach issued the following statement in response:

“Senator Shaheen and Senator Murphy are fighting back against the Trump administration’s sabotage agenda with legislation that takes aim at their harmful actions that increase out-of-pocket costs for patients. While President Trump and Republicans do everything in their power to undermine Americans’ access to health care, Senate Democrats are taking action to make health care more affordable for millions of Americans.”
