Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s State of the Union address:

 

“The American people deserve more than a speech filled with untruths. The President said he will defend people with pre-existing conditions, but he is in federal court trying to overturn the Affordable Care Act. He made promises to lower drug costs, but he opposes House legislation that allows for drug price negotiation.

 

“Tonight, the Democratic Women’s Caucus wore white to send a strong message that we’re here to fight for the people and we’re not backing down. We’ve passed legislation to lower the cost of prescription drugs, protect people with pre-existing conditions, and strengthen economic security for families across the country.”
