Elimination of ACA cost-sharing subsidies will hurt Delawareans

Rep. David Bentz issued this statement following President Trump's announcement to end cost-sharing Affordable Care Act subsidies 

“President Trump is actively undermining Obamacare at the expense of low-income and middle class Americans' lives.

The elimination of these critical cost-sharing subsidies will make healthcare unaffordable for thousands of Delaware residents. Trump's actions are a direct assault on low-income and middle class families and their bottom lines. Their health care premiums will skyrocket, which means less money for groceries, child care and basic necessities.

Millions of Americans and thousands of Delawareans, regardless of political affiliation, have obtained health insurance, some for the first time in years, under the law. We must protect, preserve and improve the ACA for all Americans.”
