Schumer Statement on Trump Administration’s Short-Term Health Insurance Plans

February 20, 2018
Washington, D.C.  U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the administration’s latest attempt at undermining the Affordable Care Act.  
“Since day one, the Trump administration playbook on health care has been to sabotage the marketplaces, jack up costs and premiums for millions of middle-class Americans. Then – as a supposed life-line to a self-inflicted crisis – offering junk insurance that fails to offer protections for those with pre-existing conditions or coverage of essential health benefits and more. Rather than offer more damaging rules and regulations that only hurt millions of American families, the administration should finally get in the business of working with both parties in Congress to improve our health care system.”
