Rep. Larsen Opposes Administration’s Efforts to Take Away People’s Health Care

Apr 3, 2019 Issues: Health Care

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) voted today to oppose the administration’s efforts to strike down the Affordable Care Act and remove protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

“Despite the Trump administration’s best attempts to undermine the Affordable Care Act, the health care law continues to help more people access high quality, affordable health care. Under the Affordable Care Act, over 750,000 Washingtonians gained insurance coverage, more than three million people with pre-existing conditions no longer live in fear of being denied health coverage and nearly 72,000 seniors have saved a cumulative $76 million on their prescription drugs.

“The administration’s efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act obstructs Washingtonians’ access to affordable, high quality health care. I remain steadfast in my support to strengthen the Affordable Care Act and provide high quality, affordable access to health care through a public option, and will continue to oppose the administration’s destructive efforts every step of the way.”
