Nancy Pelosi is blaming the recent decline in Obamacare enrollments to “sabotage” by President Trump.
From the Washington Examiner
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Trump’s executive actions since taking office, including scaling back advertising for the law, have caused the drop in enrollments in 2017. Pelosi, D-Calif., called the moves part of “a cynical ad willful campaign” to depress enrollment.
Obamacare enrollments have dropped by about half a million people in 2017 compared to 2016, the Trump administration reported Wednesday.
“As of December 24, 11.5 million Americans had signed up for coverage in the marketplaces – about 300,000 more than at the same time in the previous year,” Pelosi said. “But since taking power, Republicans have taken actions to push 2017 enrollment down.”
The Trump administration has ordered the IRS to no longer enforce fines for people who do not buy insurance.
