Delgado upset at latest healthcare attack

Mar 28, 2019 12:51 am
Ariél Zangla reports for the Daily Freeman that Rep. Antonio Delgado is upset about the Trump administration's latest plans to take apart the Affordable Care Act. "The fact is there's no doubt that the administration and Republicans for the last two years have, in essence, attempted to tear apart what can only be described as a critically important step in helping us deal with the reality that our health care system is in crisis," Delgado said during a phone call with reporters on March 26. "We have every right to be concerned about the aggressive and reckless approach the administration is taking," he said. "Not only are they seeking to undermine the ACA, but they're not even offering anything in the alternative. They are literally allowing people to fall off the cliff here. And it is downright immoral." On March 26, besides talking to reporters, Delgado also announced he is co-sponsoring legislation called the Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions & Making Health Care More Affordable Act of 2019. The bill would protect people with pre-existing conditions; expand subsidies to more middle-class families; and make other improvements to the current federal healthcare program. So it has no chance to pass in the Senate or get presidential approval. Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
