NCDP Statement on Executive Order Sabotaging Health Care Marketplaces

RALEIGH –  North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement in response to President Trump’s latest executive order continuing his sabotage of health insurance markets across the country:

“Today, the President took another step toward sabotaging health insurance for millions of Americans. By signing an executive order that could have a devastating impact on individuals and families across the United States and North Carolina, President Trump approved higher premiums, a destabilized marketplace, and stripped-down insurance plans that will fail to cover essential health benefits. Everyone deserves safe, adequate, and affordable healthcare. Today’s executive order is a step in the wrong direction and will hurt North Carolinians.”
