Trump Chooses Sabotage Over Solutions, What Will Congress Do?

After President Trump came out against the bipartisan health care reform and market stabilization deal negotiated by Senators Lamar Alexander and Patty Murray, Protect Our Care Campaign Director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement:

“Sadly, President Trump has flip flopped and now opposes bipartisan solutions that strengthen our health care markets and keep costs from going up even higher.

“The American people are demanding Washington put partisanship aside and work across the aisle to protect people’s health care and reduce costs. Even though this deal addresses only a small part of President Trump’s sabotage, it’s a good first-step to undo his decision on CSRs that is forcing health care costs up 20% across the country.

“Republicans in Congress now have to pick which side they’re on. Do they let President Trump continue to sabotage health care and force up costs for people or do they back this deal and stand up to his sabotage. If they do not stand up to this sabotage they will be responsible for higher premiums and worse coverage.”
