(Washington, D.C.) –Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Ranking Member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, issued a statement following the news that 3.2 million more individuals were uninsured by the end of 2017 as compared to the end of 2016.
“The results are in and they are tragic. After a year of President Trump’s repeated sabotage—from putting up barriers to health care, cutting open enrollment, and expanding loopholes, to trying to throw the entire system into chaos—it’s concerning but unsurprising to learn that fewer families have insurance and the ability to get the health care they so badly need. President Trump’s actions have put millions of lives at risk by putting health care farther out of reach. President Trump and Republicans must reverse course and stop this sabotage before it hurts more families.”
