Press Release

San Francisco – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on reports that President Trump is working on a “new” plan to dismantle Americans’ health care:

“The American people already know exactly what the President’s health care plans mean in their lives: higher costs, worse coverage and the end of lifesaving protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

“President Trump has waged an assault on health care since the start, and continues to order the Justice Department to ask the courts to destroy protections for people with pre-existing conditions and strike down every other protection and guarantee of affordable health care for America’s families.  And since Day One, the Trump Administration has worked relentlessly to push families into disastrous junk plans, increase their health care costs and gut their health care protections.

“These urgent threats are why more than 140 House Democrats led a Health Care for All Americans Weekend of Action with district events and online townhalls across the nation to raise a drumbeat for real steps to lower health costs and prescription drug prices.  Democrats are For The People, and will continue to fight relentlessly to protect and strengthen hard-working families’ affordable health care.”
