Leahy Comment On The Failure Of The CRA Resolution To Nullify The Trump Administration's "Junk Insurance" Rule

“The Trump Administration’s ‘junk insurance’ rule, and the Senate’s failure to nullify the rule, is yet another effort by Republicans in Congress and the White House to undermine the protections of Affordable Care Act.  This harmful and cynical rule will expand the sale of short-term ‘junk’ plans that can deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, and that do not have to cover essential services like prescription drugs, emergency room visits, substance abuse, and maternity care.  We should be working together on ways to stabilize the insurance market and lower prices, instead of sabotaging health insurance protections that millions of Americans need and want.”
