Gov. Malloy And Lt. Gov. Wyman Statements On President Trump's Efforts To Create Trumpcare By Executive Order

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman released the following statements regarding President Trump’s efforts to undermine the Affordable Care Act by creating Trumpcare through executive order:

Governor Malloy said, “This executive order is yet another attack on affordable healthcare for Americans. The Trump administration continues to inject uncertainty into the marketplace and today’s action is yet another effort to destabilize the individual insurance marketplace. Sabotaging the Affordable Care Act will cause real harm to people and it is infuriating that these assaults will not stop. We implore Congress and the President to constructively engage with states to fix and strengthen the law rather than conspiring for its failure.”

Lt Governor Wyman said, “This executive order is an end-run around the Affordable Care Act, a law that millions of Americans have come out to defend every time Congress tried to repeal it. Americans have made it clear that they want to fix the ACA, not end it. The newest repeal incarnation by the Trump administration will threaten healthcare for thousands of residents in Connecticut and make it harder for insurers to do business – exactly the opposite goals we’ve worked toward in our state and in states throughout the country.”
