    2. Governor McAuliffe Responds to President Trump’s Decision to End Cost-Sharing Reduction Payments

      Take aways:

      • What are the details of this announcement?
      • “President Trump’s assault on health care over the last 24 hours has once again proved that he is singularly determined to destroy any opportunity for hard-working, middle class Americans to maintain affordable health care coverage. Eliminating cost sharing reduction payments will directly lead to higher premiums for Virginia families and millions of Americans across the country.  There's no way to sugar coat this - President Trump is directly and purposefully inflicting harm on the American people so he can score political points with his base. It's a shameful and frankly unimaginable act from the leader of this great nation,” said Governor McAuliffe
