Specifically, Trump has said the administration may stop paying the ACA’s Cost-Sharing Reduction payments — which save consumers thousands of dollars a year — if Democrats won’t come to the bargaining table to discuss repeal.

Trump’s reckless stunt could leave consumers without coverage, cause insurers to leave markets and destabilize the Obamacare marketplaces.
Health Care for America Now (HCAN) is the national grassroots coalition that ran a $60 million five-and-a-half year campaign from 2008-2013 to pass, protect, and promote the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and protect Medicare and Medicaid. HCAN has come back together to fight the Republicans’ all-out effort to take away America’s health care and put people at the mercy of the health insurance companies again.
