Nolan Statement on Trump Administration’s Executive Order To Sabotage Americans’ Health Care

Oct 12, 2017
Press Release

U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s Executive Order signed today, which would sabotage Americans’ health care by undermining the Affordable Care Act.


“Republican leadership has repeatedly tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act legislatively. Because that tactic has failed, the administration is now planning to sabotage Americans’ health care by going through the back door with an executive order.


The association health plans that this order facilitates are nothing more than unregulated, fly-by-night health policies with skimpy benefits. These plans would destabilize the health insurance market, hike up premiums for the elderly and the sick, and hurt families in Minnesota and the entire nation.


I want to work with my Republican colleagues to enhance our nation’s health care in a thoughtful, bipartisan manner. That’s the right way to improve healthcare in America – not through a backdoor executive order.”
