Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after President Trump signed an executive order designed to split the insurance risk pool to drive Americans into skeletal health insurance plans and spike premiums on Americans with pre-existing conditions:
“Thanks to President Trump’s executive sabotage, the millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions could lose access to the affordable health coverage they and their families rely on.
“The President’s cynical executive order is designed to force families across America to pay the most when they can afford it the least. 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, saddled with desperate choices and crushing medical bills.
“The American people overwhelmingly rejected Trumpcare, but President Trump is still spitefully trying to sabotage their health care, drive up their costs and gut their coverage.”
