How Republicans Are Sabotaging Obamacare

Documenting how Donald Trump and Republicans are sabotaging Obamacare (aka The Affordable Care Act) and hurting American patients.

Threatening Obamacare Subsidies

By constantly refusing to provide certainty to insurance providers on paying for subsidies, Trump and Republicans are pushing insurance companies to raise their costs. Cathryn Donaldson, a spokeswoman for America’s Health Insurance Plans, said, “This uncertainty is arguably the single most destabilizing factor in the individual market, and millions of Americans could soon feel the impact of fewer choices, higher costs, and reduced access to care.”

Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) admitted Republicans are sabotaging the system: “Those subsidies are not only important to stabilize the insurance markets, but they’re absolutely vital to low-income individuals.”
