On the heels of rolling back birth control
protections for women last week through an executive order, President Trump issued another executive order to undo critical parts of the Affordable Care Act (ACA/Obamacare) that have made it easier for individuals to access affordable health care, jeopardizing the health and financial security of millions of Americans, and damaging our nation’s economy.
Really, Pres. Trump? REALLY?!
Somehow President Trump thinks he is going to get away with torpedoing the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare and not be held accountable for it. No way!
The moms and dads of America will hold President Trump accountable for our health care security and will not stand for this blatant disregard for the health of our families in order to play politics. The heartless executive order is the worst instance yet of his attempts to sabotage the ACA and could massively undermine the protections gained under the law.

Dear President Trump,
The moms and dads of America will not stand for you to undermine the Affordable Care Act and sabotage our health care system.
Further, we will hold you accountable for undermining our health care security including the protections for people with pre-existing conditions and the requirement that plans offer essential health benefits like maternity coverage, prescription drugs, and mental health care.
Stop sabotaging our health care system and playing politics with the health of America’s families! We hold you accountable for our health care. We urge you to rescind the harmful executive order titled "Promoting Healthcare Choice and Competition Across the United States" and instead focus on stabilizing the insurance markets and making health care more accessible and affordable for all of us.
After you sign, some social media share options will pop onto your screen in case you have time to double down today. We hope you do! President Trump is hoping to sabotage Obamacare and that the American public will blame Obama. It’s critical now to make sure everyone understands that President Trump is trying to sabotage our health care and send a strong message to the President that he will be held accountable.
Pres. Trump’s executive order
will allow sales of cheaper policies with fewer benefits and fewer protections for consumers. These deliberate attempts to sabotage our health care system will serve to destabilize the insurance market and make health insurance less affordable, less accessible, and less comprehensive for the most vulnerable people in our society.
As is so often the case, low-income women, families, people with disabilities, the elderly, and those who live in rural and medically underserved communities will suffer the most, with a compounding impact in Black, Latinx, Asian, Native American, and LGBTQ+ communities. President Trump is willing to harm the health of millions of children, parents, and families to score a political victory. That is disgraceful.
