Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the Department of Labor issued a proposed rule to roll back health coverage protections by expanding association health plans:

“The Trump Administration continues to try to put Americans at risk of being taken advantage of by junk health insurance plans without vital protections and guarantees of care.  After an accident or an illness, those pushed into shoddy Trumpcare plans will find they’ve been paying for coverage that doesn’t cover much at all.

“The Administration should work in good faith to improve and update the Affordable Care Act, not continue to try to undermine the promise of dependable comprehensive health coverage for all Americans.”
