American Nurses Association Condemns Trump's Latest Executive Order

10/12/17
Below is the statement from Pamela F. Cipriano, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, president of the American Nurses Association (ANA) on President Donald Trump's executive order:

"This is an all-out assault

on the consumer protections gained under the Affordable Care Act, creating sub-par health care for some and higher costs for others: Patients could be sold insurance plans that do not cover essential health services, like contraception, mental health care, and addiction treatment; patients with pre-existing conditions may not be able to afford coverage and the health care markets could be destabilized, leaving consumers with fewer – if any – options for affordable, quality health coverage. ANA denounces today's action, which sabotages Americans' health care."
