Shea-Porter Statement on Trump Executive Order

October 12, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) released the following statement regarding today’s executive order:

“Americans have been very clear over the past months that they don’t want to return to the days of discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions and bare-bones junk insurance that’s not there when you need it – but that’s exactly what this executive order would do. While we won’t know the scope of the damage until regulations are drafted, this executive order is yet another step taken by the Trump Administration to sabotage the Affordable Care Act and make it harder for people in New Hampshire to access good, affordable healthcare.”

 

BACKGROUND

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners’ analysis of a legislative proposal to expand association health plans stated that these entities have ‘done more harm than good.’
