Wyden Statement on the Trump Administration's Latest Attempt to Sabotage Americans' Health Care

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued a statement following the release of the proposed National Benefits and Payment Parameters rule for 2019. 

“Trump’s health care sabotage agenda is defined by higher premiums for families and bureaucratic barriers that make it harder to find health coverage,” Wyden said. “Today’s proposed rule deliberately and needlessly increases premiums and will result in too many Americans losing access to health coverage. It’s no wonder Americans are so fed up with America’s health care system when the Trump administration continues to fan the flames of uncertainty while families pick up the check.”
