Rep. Meeks Statement on Trump Continuing Assault on Americans’ Health Care

Washington, D.C.—Congressman Meeks released the following statement after President Trump signed an executive order that would divide up the insurance risk pool and hike premiums on Americans with pre-existing conditions:

"The U.S. Senate—reflecting the will of the American people—resoundingly rejected Trumpcare. Twice. Still, the President is intent on sabotaging healthcare in America and has decided to resurrect the worst parts of those heartless bills after his failure. Insurance plans’ will cover less. Those with pre-existing conditions will see their premiums rise. Without a doubt, many will be worse off.

“I will continue to work with my Democratic colleagues to improve the Affordable Care Act, and I hope my Republican colleagues will listen to their constituents and join our efforts.”
