Trump Threat to Withhold Payments and Sabotage Our Health Care Is Heartless
President Trump’s threat to withhold the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA’s) subsidies is nothing less than a threat to sabotage the health coverage that millions of families rely on for life-saving care.
Withholding these payments would destabilize the insurance markets and cause the premiums that families pay to skyrocket. His threat is heartless and shows complete disregard for our children and families.
There is good reason the ACA repeal legislation the President tried to pass did not have support from the public or the Congress. Instead of using threats and bullying, his administration should now work to protect and strengthen the ACA and protect Medicaid. That’s what the more than one million members of MomsRising want and what our economy and the country need.
