Washington, D.C. Today, U.S. Congressman Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), senior member of the House Committee on Ways & Means and Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Tax Policy, issued a statement condemning President Donald Trump’s executive order to undermine the Affordable Care Act and harm those with pre-existing conditions. Rep. Doggett said:

“Having failed legislatively to replace Obamacare, President Trump continues his effort to sabotage it. Today’s Trumpcare edict means bare-bones, junk insurance will undermine health care, removing protections against high out-of-pocket costs and abandoning those with preexisting conditions. The policies’ fine print will take away sales promotion promises. Those who need coverage the most will be unable to afford it once this move splinters the market and yet another Trump surcharge is added to premiums.”
