Schumer Statement On President Trump’s Misleading Op-Ed In USA Today

October 10, 2018
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s Op-Ed in today’s USA Today:
“All of the false and misleading words in the world can’t cover up the truth: President Trump and Republicans in Congress are forcing millions of Americans to pay more for health insurance and trying to rip away protections for people with pre-existing conditions. President Trump’s USA Today Op-Ed is just the latest in a long and blatant disinformation campaign designed to mislead the public while his administration engages in a purposeful sabotage of our nation’s healthcare system. The American people deserve better than smears and sabotage – that’s why today, Senate Democrats will vote to overturn the Trump administration’s junk insurance rule, a policy the AARP says ‘would result in much higher premiums for older adults and people with preexisting health conditions buying individual policies through the ACA Marketplace.'"
