VIDEO RELEASE: No Healthcare Plan? That’s Not What President Trump Repeatedly Promised Americans

April 10, 2019

President Trump Has Promised His Healthcare Plan Is Right Around The Corner For Years Now – But He Has Always Failed To Deliver An Actual Plan To Improve Americans’ Health Care. 

The Trump Administration Is Supporting A Lawsuit That Would End The Healthcare Law, Increasing Costs And Leaving Up To 133 Million Americans With Pre-Existing Conditions, Older Americans, And Women At Risk For Higher Health Care Costs Or Denial Of Coverage Altogether. 

Schumer: Republicans’ Real Healthcare Plan Is All Repeal, No Replace. 

Washington, D.C. – Today, Senate Democrats released a new video highlighting that President Trump has repeatedly promised American families that he was nearly ready to introduce a real healthcare plan that would preserve coverage and pre-existing condition protections, but again and again, he has failed to deliver. The Trump Justice Department is fighting in the courts to strike down the entire healthcare law, including protections for pre-existing conditions, and the administration simply has no plan to replace the law, especially protecting those who would be hurt, if they succeed. The Trump administration’s latest all-assault on our healthcare law would leave up to 133 million Americans with pre-existing conditions at risk for higher healthcare costs or denial of coverage altogether, and the more than 100 million people who receive health insurance through their employer could once again face lifetime or annual coverage limits.

“Republicans’ healthcare plan is simple: all repeal, no plan to replace. Again and again, the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress have worked to take away American families’ health care and raise their costs, whether it be supporting a lawsuit that would eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions and sow chaos in our healthcare system, or plotting to cut Medicare and Medicaid,” said Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. “President Trump and Congressional Republicans lack a healthcare plan that would actually preserve protections for pre-existing conditions, coverage gains, and affordability that they claim to support. Republicans need to stop playing games with the health of the American people.”
