STATEMENT BY U.S. CONFERENCE OF MAYORS PRESIDENT AND NEW ORLEANS MAYOR MITCH LANDRIEU ON PRESIDENT TRUMP UNDERMINING ACA

Washington, D.C, Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In response to President Trump’s decision to undermine the Affordable Care Act, U.S. Conference of Mayors President and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu released the following statement:

 

"The president’s executive order to eliminate the Affordable Care Act's consumer protections and to dismantle insurance rules is not about creating a free market.  It is a devastating, undermining blow to an already fragile marketplace and would make it more difficult for individuals with preexisting conditions to secure affordable health coverage.  

 

While a group of Republicans and Democrats in the Senate are working hard to insure healthcare access for all Americans, the President once again is putting politics over the needs of millions of Americans. 

 

Mayors are leaders on the ground who understand the human toll a lack of access to or unaffordable insurance has in the lives of the American people.  That is why mayors of both parties from every region in the country strongly reject the President's action and fully support a continuation of bipartisan work in the Senate to improve health outcomes for the American people.”
