Schumer Statement on Findings from New Commonwealth Fund ACA Tracking Survey

May 1, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding Former Secretary Price’s comments and the new Commonwealth Fund study findings on health care costs.

“Former Secretary Price’s comments and the new Commonwealth Fund study continue to remove any doubt that Republicans and the Trump administration own any and all increases in health care premiums for American consumers. The American people know the Trump administration is responsible for the repeated sabotage of the health care system and that Republicans in Congress prioritized destroying our current system rather than improving it, which could lead to higher costs and fewer options for quality care. Just like their tax bill, Republicans have clearly sided with special corporate interests over the wishes of middle-class families.”
