Center for Popular Democracy Blasts Trump Plan to Destroy Healthcare

Statement from Director of Healthcare Justice Jennifer Flynn


NEW YORK – In response to Trump's Executive Order allowing the sale of healthcare plans that are flout the rules of the Affordable Care Act, Jennifer Flynn, Director of Healthcare Justice at Center for Popular Democracy, released the following statement:

“Make no mistake, Trump's Executive Order on healthcare is an assault on our democracy. Since he was sworn in, tens of thousands of people have taken regular, repeated, sustained and even drastic action to end the attack on our healthcare. Congress has tried repeated ways to repeal the Affordable Care Act only to be beaten back by the power of the people. It is a dictatorial act to unilaterally undue a public policy that has been fought for so hard.”



The Center for Popular Democracy promotes equity, opportunity, and a dynamic democracy in partnership with innovative base-building organizations, organizing networks and alliances, and progressive unions across the country. CPD builds the strength and capacity of democratic organizations to envision and advance a pro-worker, pro-immigrant, racial justice agenda.
