CHICAGOU.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement after President Trump signed an executive order further targeting and destabilizing the Affordable Care Act:
Make no mistakeafter spending nine months repeatedly trying and failing to repeal the Affordable Care Act, President Trump is sabotaging Americas health care system and hurting working families to make a political point. His tactics are well documented: President Trump issued an Executive Order instructing federal agencies not to enforce the law, cut the open enrollment period in half, cancelled television and radio ads that educated people about how to enroll for insurance, slashed funding for patient navigators and outreach efforts, and refuses to commit to paying the cost-sharing reduction subsidies that help keep health care costs lower for working families.
Instead of joining in a bipartisan effort to strengthen our current health care system and help Illinois families, President Trump is continuing his sabotage and hurting countless Americans in the process.
Sen. Murray: Trump executive orders will force patients to pay more, lose quality coverage options
The only way to get results for patients and families on health care is to work across the aisle and find common groundand were doing exactly that in the Senate
(Washington, D.C.) Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), top Democrat on the Senate health committee, today issued the following statement on President Trumps executive order intended to undermine the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and cause further confusion in our health care markets.
The policies President Trump is announcing today are the latest and worst in his yearlong effort to create Trumpcare by sabotage. They will force patients across the country to pay more for their care, lose quality coverage options, and find themselves with surprise medical bills when they can least afford it.
As weve seen again and again this year, the only way to get results for patients and families on health care is to work across the aisle and find common groundand were doing exactly that in the Senate to try to stabilize the market and protect people from some of the damage President Trumps health care sabotage has caused.
The President has made a lot of promises to families about their health care, and if he truly wants to keep them, hell stop trying to create Trumpcare by sabotage, accept that repeal is off the table, and support Congress in getting our work done for patients and families.
F’kin D for Democrat says it all.
Bend over GOP. Dems want to work across the aisle.
This retromingent buffoon is a wolf, a snake in our midst. He is the go to clown the RATS call on to make their case of lies, subversion and false accusations. FU Durbin, put on your tin foil turban and go sit in your corner.
Thank heaven, God, Allah, Buddah, and every other god, whether real, Pagan, or nature, both mythological and historical, that we now have a president with enough jewels to do what is right and not pc.
This plan costs “0”; something the Dems cannot claim.
Durbin does neglect to mention that the “ government cost reduction subsidies “ have been ruled illegal and unconstitutional
Dickhead Durbin is speaking out of his A$$.
Those Navigators. That always looked like a scam money siphon
Shut up Dick! Your ObamaCare is collapsing and you know it. At least the GOP is trying to soften the landing for Americans when it does.
Durbin seems angry, as if he has investments in insurance companies or something and he’ll personally take a financial hit.
Democrats used bipartisanship to pass ObamaCare, right.....end sarcasm
Turban seems to be making Trump’s point. Dick Durban before he dicks you!
“Those Navigators. That always looked like a scam money siphon”
It does. I wonder if ‘navigators’ are part of ACORN/OFA.
If nothing else, the entire 0-care is ripe for kickbacks for all the cronies.
Proof positive that Trump’s doing the right thing.
I guess we should expect that kind of rhetoric from those who are defending something they didn't even read before they passed it.
Y'all just let that rollllllll around in your head for a little while.
