Donald Trump Schemes to Slash the Affordable Care Act; Republicans Like Jen Kiggans Would Go Right Along


From the DCCC:

Donald Trump, Jen Kiggans Scheme to Slash the Affordable Care Act
This weekend, Donald Trump loudly proclaimed his promise to rip health care away from millions of Americans, saying Republicans ‘should never give up’ their goal of repealing Obamacare. It’s clear Donald Trump and Jen Kiggans are still hellbent on taking away the essential health care programs that millions of working families rely on.

Repealing the Affordable Care Act would:

·        End critical protections for more than 100 million people with pre-existing conditions, allowing insurance companies to deny them coverage.

·        Allow insurance companies to reinstate annual and lifetime spending limits on coverage.

·        Put over 40 million people’s health insurance at risk.

·        Threaten coverage for 69 million people who rely on Medicaid.

·        Massively increase costs for seniors and people with disabilities who receive home care.

·        Cut access to substance abuse treatment and mental health care.

·        Force hundreds of rural hospitals to close.

We know Jen Kiggans and House Republicans will follow along: the Republican Study Committee has already put the ACA on the chopping block.

DCCC Spokesperson Justin Chermol:
“Jen Kiggans is so obsessed with pleasing Donald Trump that she is all-in on his scheme to take health care away from millions of Virginians with pre-existing conditions.”
