Murray Denounces President Trump’s Latest Effort to Take Coverage Away, Undermine Medicaid

(Washington, D.C.) Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Ranking Member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, issued the following statement on the Trump Administration’s proposed work requirements for Medicaid.


“It speaks volumes that after spending a year sabotaging families’ health care and jamming through tax cuts for massive corporations and the wealthiest, one of President Trump’s first priorities in the new year is to pull the rug out from people who simply want affordable health care they can rely on. Patients and families have spoken out time and time again to reject President Trump and Republicans’ attempts to take their health care away by undermining Medicaid—so I hope my Republican colleagues will join me in loudly rejecting this President’s latest harmful step.”
