Don’t negotiate on ACA cost-sharing subsidy program | Letter

To our Congress and Patty Murray, Maria Cantwell, and Adam Smith: Please make our voices heard and do not, under any circumstance, agree to negotiate with Trump on the $7 billion per year ACA cost-sharing subsidy program.

The House Republicans have already actively undermined the ACA. Now President Trump is threatening to hold a gun to the head of insurers who cover medical bills incurred by low-income patients to extort Democratic cooperation in further undermining American healthcare. Say no!
