Recently in Nevada, President Trump attempted to blame the premium increases Americans are seeing due to actions by his Administration on the Affordable Care Act. Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement in response:
“Donald Trump has waged a vengeful campaign which has harmed Americans’ health insurance from the moment he took office. He has supported every health care repeal bill, attempted to tank open enrollment, and introduced alternative junk plans have been projected to increase premiums by as much as twenty percent. As insurance companies announce their proposed rate increases for next year, they are continuously citing actions by the Administration as responsible for the increase. President Trump and Congressional Republicans like Dean Heller should be working on common-sense, bipartisan solutions to lower Americans’ costs rather than lighting the match that starts the fire and then blaming the house for burning down.”
It is imperative that going forward Progressives do not allow our lying president to create a false narrative that gives the impression that the Affordable Care Act and Democrats are responsible for pending explosion in health insurance premiums. With all the scandals he generates, it is easy to not stay on message. We must continue letting Americans know that the Trump/GOP sabotage is responsible for the high premium increases.
