ROSEN RESPONDS TO TRUMP’S ATTEMPT TO UNDERMINE THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s Executive order to undermine the Affordable Care Act and sabotage health care markets in Nevada and across the country.

“President Trump has attempted to single-handedly undermine and erode the programs which cut Nevada’s uninsured rate by half,” said Rosen. “This will weaken the health insurance market and opens the door to skyrocketing premiums and discriminatory practices against those with pre-existing conditions. This is the latest in a long list of damaging actions this administration has taken to sabotage our health care system. Nevadans have had enough with these politically motivated charades, and I will continue to fight to stop them. It’s time for both sides to work on bipartisan solutions to ensure that healthcare is affordable and accessible to all families.”

BACKGROUND: Congresswoman Rosen is a co-sponsor of H.R.3258, the Marketplace Certainty Act, a bill that would immediately address market instability by controlling costs and helping to keep insurers from exiting the Silver State Exchange. The bill funds cost-sharing reductions provided by the Affordable Care Act, which would help drive down premiums costs to make insurance plans more affordable for consumers.
