Heinrich Statement On President Trump's Decision To End Critical Health Care Payments

14 October 2017

NY state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says he's joining a multistate effort to sue over President Donald Trump's decision to end a provision of the federal health care law that lowered out-of-pocket medical costs for millions of Americans.

I got a look at the EO. while he was signing it from kind of some leaks and there's really just three things- There's a lot more in what the president said than there are actually details in the executive order.

Trump's executive order isn't expected to trigger any immediate changes in US health care policy - or affect coverage in 2018 - because the measures that it calls for could take months or longer to implement.

The government payments to insurers for these vital subsidies, which are used to offset medical costs by lower and middle income families, were seen by the Trump administration and many Republicans as unlawful. "That's what we on the local level need to counteract".

"Amazingly, we have a president who is trying to destroy the American health care system". His only goal has been to destroy the Affordable Care Act.

At one point between songs, Bennington tells Jeong: "This is probably the greatest day of my life, right now". Bennington, who struggled with depression, committed suicide by hanging on 20 July this year.

Schneiderman said he expected other states to join in the suits.

Cuomo added: "This is just the latest action that targets NY following congress's failure to renew the child health insurance plan and the Health Centers Program, putting our children and the most vulnerable among us at risk to lose access to health care".

Trump's action "means bare-bones, junk insurance will undermine health care, removing protections against high out-of-pocket costs and abandoning those with preexisting conditions", Doggett said.

"Sadly, instead of working to lower health costs for Americans, it seems President Trump will singlehandedly hike Americans' health premiums", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement.

Smith said he has "long been a proponent of the flexibility for individuals to purchase insurance across state lines and freedom for small businesses to band together and increase their purchasing power".
