Schumer Statement On Trump Admin’s Final Rule to Expand Junk Health Care Plans

August 1, 2018

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the Trump administration’s finalizing of a rule to expand junk health care insurance plans:

"Today, the Trump administration has finalized a plan for a new type of health insurance that will repeal protections on pre-existing conditions and allow insurance companies to cover fewer benefits, not more. These new short-terms plans are nothing short of junk insurance and are so dangerous for Americans that it's no wonder not a single group representing patients, physicians, nurses or hospitals has voiced support. Democrats will do everything in our power to stop this.”
