Austin, TX -- Today, Democrats met to forge a strategy to save American lives by protecting the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, and Medicaid. Read more from the New York Times here.
Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“The disastrous side effects of Trump Republican plans to repeal Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act could not be more clear: Americans will die.
“There is no viable Republican plan to keep health care protections in place and costs down for families. Republicans will be voting to rip healthcare and earned benefits away from over 100 million Americans, empower insurance companies, destroy our economy, and leave Americans to a dark fate of sickness and death. Republicans will make America sick again.
“Today, President Obama and Congressional Democrats met to save the Affordable Care Act. America’s families are counting on us to stand our ground, fight for them, and save healthcare. Texas Democrats will live up to that responsibility.”
