AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders issued the following statement in response to President Trumps decision to end vital health care subsidies under the Affordable Care Act:
With this decision, the president has ushered in the era of Trumpcare, under which Americans will have fewer coverage choices and face skyrocketing premium costs.
By sabotaging the health care system just as open enrollment is set to begin, the president has all but guaranteed that insurers will abandon the market and working families will bear the brunt of the pain.
Americans will go broke, get sicker or worse because of this decision. There is no reasonable justification for the president to have taken this action. Making the lives of Americans leverage for political purposes is unacceptable.
Congress must move forward quickly with legislation that builds on the progress made through the Affordable Care Act instead of sabotaging it.
I don't watch them.
Here's an old song I like;)
What else can they say?
Obamacare was a disaster. Premiums were going to radically, and some states were already down to single-payer or close to it.
Something had to be done.
Trump is trying to open up the market to get more competition.
Those states with very few options, should now have more in years to come.
The Left is always panicked over things Republican do to get things back on track.
If this guy thinks there wouldn’t have been problems this year under Obamacare, he’s simply uninformed.
“fewer coverage choices and face skyrocketing premium costs.”
We have that now, Lee, with the Affordable Care act.
Thanks to the taxpayers, Generous Motors and others, AFSCME included, have gold-plated health care plans.
How many of you bums, foreign and domestic, do we have to carry on our backs while we suffer with unaffordable, bad insurance, or no insurance at all with stiff penalties enforced by your IRS thugs?
WE won, you lost. Deal with it union goblin.
Obama should be prosecuted for what he did. The insurance companies should be forced to return the money and claw it back from those who benefited from the illegal subsidies.
What was it called before Obamacare?
Oh yeah, the best Healthcare System in the World.
Lee really isn’t going to like it when he loses his exemptions.
Union goons goonating in goonery.
A union of government paycheck recipients I will *not* pay heed to!
How many of them are on Obamacare, anyway?
I hope those subsidies were vital. I want Obamacare dead. If rates rise enough, even the spineless republicans will be willing to repeal the law they promised for seven years that they would repeal. Drive enough people out, and CBO scoring will show that the repeal doesn’t cost anything.
I want Obamacare dead. I want Obama’s legacy erased. I want freedom restored. When my grandchildren study history, I want them to ask me why Obama is the only White House occupant listed with no accomplishments, except as a bad example.
Love to see dems suffer..love it!!
Didn’t they get one of thousands of “sweetheart deals” Obama handed out ti keep lots of libs on the bus?
Federal judge has already ruled the subsidies are unconstitutional.
