“Tom Price’s testimony today is directly at odds with Donald Trump’s own rhetoric. Trump has admitted he’s trying to sabotaging the Affordable Care Act all in the name of partisan politics – and even the healthcare industry is begging the Trump Administration to stop its petty tactics. Just like the President, the Secretary is a liar, and no one should believe a word he has to say,” said American Bridge spokesperson Andrew Bates.
- Axios, 6/8/2017: “Price: No interest in ‘sabotaging’ ACA…Didn’t answer a question from Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow about why the administration won’t commit to paying for the ACA’s cost-sharing reduction subsidies.”
- Politico, 5/19/2017: “President Donald Trump has told advisers he wants to end payments of key Obamacare subsidies, a move that could send the health law’s insurance markets into a tailspin, according to several sources familiar with the conversations.”
- Wall Street Journal, 4/12/2017: “Nearly three weeks after Republican infighting sank an overhaul of the Affordable Care Act, President Donald Trump dug back into the battle on Wednesday, threatening to withhold payments to insurers to force Democrats to the negotiating table.”
- Washington Post, 3/24/2017: “In an interview on Friday with The Washington Post, Trump made his inclinations clear: ‘The best thing politically is to let Obamacare explode.'”
