TNDP CHAIRWOMAN MARY MANCINI RELEASED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION EFFORT TO REPEAL THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

JUNE 25TH, 2020 (Nashville, TN) 

“The American people are suffering from an escalating health crisis and now, rather than protecting those he has sworn to protect, President Trump wants to rip their health care out from under them. With more than 2.5 million COVID-19 cases nationwide (35,000+ in Tennessee) and 125,000 deaths from the virus, now is not the time to repeal the Affordable Care Act and strip 133 million Americans of their healthcare. 

Trump’s lack of leadership in the middle of a global pandemic is damaging enough, but actively working to take away one of our most critical tools in providing health care to millions and funding to rural hospitals is cruel and immoral.”

– Mary Mancini, TNDP Chairwoman
