7 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE LOST HEALTHCARE UNDER TRUMP.

THE PROBLEM

CUTS TO MEDICARE

During his 2016 Presidential campaign, Donald Trump promised voters that he would not make any cuts to Medicare. As President, Trump broke this promise.

In 2017, Trump worked with Republicans in Congress to pass a $1.5 trillion tax cut for billionaires and the wealthiest corporations — recklessly exploding our country’s deficit. Then, in his 2019 budget proposal, Trump proposed slashing Medicare by $845 billion over the next 10 years, saying we need to cut the program in order to balance the budget.

Not only did Trump turn his back on one of the most deeply popular social programs in the history of the United States, but he jeopardized Medicare coverage for 60 million seniors and put the future of the entire program at risk.

SABOTAGING THE ACA

The Affordable Care Act guarantees access to healthcare for tens of millions of Americans regardless of age, class, gender, or pre-existing condition. But time and time again, Trump and Republicans in Congress have engaged in a calculated campaign to undermine and sabotage the ACA — putting people with pre-existing conditions and over 20 million Americans who rely on the ACA for coverage at risk.

The Trump Administration has cut funds used to inform Americans about their healthcare choices, shortened the window to sign up for healthcare, and advocated for state requirements that have pushed thousands of families off of their insurance. Now, the Trump Administration has taken its sabotage to the courts — arguing for the ACA to be ruled unconstitutional and thrown out in its entirety.

As a result of these relentless attacks, over 7 million Americans have lost health insurance under Trump. And as long as these attacks continue, hard working families will continue to see major barriers between themselves and affordable healthcare access.

INACTION ON RX PRICES

Despite big promises to rein in sky-high prescription drug prices, the Trump Administration has done virtually nothing to hold for-profit drug corporations accountable for ripping off the American people.

On this administration’s watch, more than 3,400 drugs saw a price increase in just the first half of 2019, with costs rising on average at 5 times the rate of inflation. That means that Americans who rely on life-saving medications like insulin, inhalers, and epipens are having to ration their medication or stop taking it altogether — putting themselves at risk of sickness, and in some cases, death.

It’s time to stop the Trump Administration from letting for-profit drug companies get away with murder.

MORE CUTS PROMISED

In late August 2019, reports began circulating that Trump has been telling Washington insiders that gutting Medicare would be a “fun second-term project.”
