Oct. 13, 2017: Statement of Betsy Ryan on Trump Administration Ending Insurance Premium Subsidies that Help Low-Income Americans

“We are very disappointed that the Trump Administration is eliminating the subsidies that help people in need buy health insurance. This onslaught of attacks on the Affordable Care Act will have grave impacts on those who count on the ACA for insurance, as well as the entire health insurance market. We call on Congress to step in and swiftly complete work on a repair plan, including reauthorizing the Children’s Health Insurance Program. That critical program to protect our kids expired Sept. 30 with no action by our elected officials. This is a very troubling time for U.S. families.”
