Graham Statement On Health Care Executive Order

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made the following statement on President Trump’s executive order on health care.

“I applaud the executive order by President Trump to open up the health care insurance market by allowing purchases across state lines.  This decision, combined with creating more consumer choices for health care policies will improve quality and lower costs. 

“Obamacare is failing and will eventually collapse.  South Carolinians are already down to one provider on our Obamacare exchange and that provider is seeking a 31% increase in premiums this year.  Americans deserve better than they are currently getting from Obamacare. 

“Legislation I recently introduced, Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson, was founded on the principle that moving money and power out of Washington gives consumers a stronger voice in their health care. I will continue to push for our legislation which will return health care power and decision making to patients and states.”
