Second Open Enrollment Period Under GOP Sabotage
“People who need insurance should sign up for coverage starting November 1 and then show up to the polls on November 6,” says Leslie Dach
Washington, DC – Today begins the start of the sixth Affordable Care Act Open Enrollment period and the second that has been subjected to numerous acts of sabotage by President Trump and the GOP. In response to the start of this Open Enrollment period, which runs from November 1 through December 15, Leslie Dach, chair of Protect Our Care, issued the following statement:
“The Affordable Care Act helps millions of Americans find quality health coverage, protects people with pre-existing conditions, and guarantees that insurance covers us when we get sick. But instead of supporting the law, the Trump Administration and this Republican Congress have done everything they can to sabotage the Affordable Care Act and undermine open enrollment. Republican sabotage has increased insurance premiums, ended almost all outreach and advertising in support of enrollment, and could eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions.
“The Republican war on health care is an outrage, and Americans will show their outrage on Election Day. People who need insurance should sign up for coverage starting November 1 and then show up to the polls on November 6 and send pro-repeal-and-sabotage Republicans packing.”
