Washington, D.C. –U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02), a member of the Appropriations Committee’s Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Subcommittee, released the following statement after Anthem announced it will reduce individual health care plan offerings in Wisconsin next year.

“You can trace Anthem’s decision to the instability President Trump and Republicans in Congress have injected into the health care marketplace. Instead of working with Democrats to fix some of the issues with the Affordable Care Act, Trump has decided to do everything in his power to create a volatile environment for health care plan providers and allow millions of people to potentially lose coverage. The American people want their elected officials to be open and transparent about health care legislation pending Congressional consideration and want us to work together to make health care affordable and accessible. Republicans in Congress have made it clear their priority is to give tax cuts for the wealthy, while taking away coverage for millions of Americans.”
