During his 2016 Delaware campaign rally, Donald Trump promised that Ohioans would have “great health care at a fraction of the cost.” But instead of working to protect our care, the Trump Administration continues to undercut the Affordable Care Act — and Ohioans are paying the price.
In 2018, there were about 744,000 Ohioans uninsured. Under Trump’s failed leadership, more than 100,000 Ohioans lost coverage compared to the 640,000 Ohioans without health insurance in 2016. In addition, Ohioans on average saw a $2,210 annual premium increase.
While Ohioans are struggling to pay their medical bills, Donald Trump is working to gut the Affordable Care Act. Even as I write this administration is preparing to argue before the Supreme Court to get rid of protections for pre-existing conditions. We cannot afford another four years of broken promises. We need to elect a president who will fight to lower drug costs, protect people with pre-existing conditions and ensure all Ohioans have access to affordable quality health care.
