WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the Trump Administration's announcement that it will slash funding for navigators, making it harder for Americans to enroll in coverage:

“The Trump Administration’s efforts to sabotage the Affordable Care Act continue unabated, and this new change fits into a concerted pattern meant to make it harder for Americans to access quality, affordable insurance coverage.  What the President failed to achieve through legislation he is now trying to accomplish through executive actions, slashing funding for navigators and making it harder for Americans to enroll in coverage, in addition to promoting junk plans that discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions.  But the American people are paying attention and will not allow Trump-Republican health care sabotage efforts to succeed, and Democrats will continue to defend Americans’ access to quality health care and fight for policies to bring health care costs down for working families.”
