Trump expands employer-funded health plans



[Applause] Wow [Applause] that is very very nice please you must like what I'm about to say I think and today I'm pleased to announce another groundbreaking action we are dramatically increasing the ability of Americans to access more affordable health insurance through options and through their employers we're doing so by expanding health reimbursement arrangements or HRAs as they are commonly known HRAs will allow American workers to shop for the plan that's right for them and their family and have their employer cover the cost and it's a reasonable cost and people are going to be getting tremendous benefits so many years for so many decades they've been going only in one direction up thanks to the changes we're making an estimated 11 million Americans will now choose their own plans with the help of the HRAs this will increase the size thank you it's a very big deal this will increase the size of individual market by at least 50 percent improving choice promoting competition and lowering costs for the American people they will be especially useful for small employers I've repeatedly called on Congress to work with us to bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs so all happening it said more than 120 Democrats in Congress have signed up for the Bernie Sanders massive government takeover of health care that's gonna hurt a lot of people it's gonna hurt our country socialist health care would crush American workers with higher taxes long wait times and far worse care their plan would eliminate Medicare as we know it and terminate the private health insurance of 180 million Americans and even more than that now on my watch we will never let that happen we will never be a socialist country [Applause]
