Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, issued the following statement after Donald Trump signed the Trump-Pence tax scam into law. This dangerous legislation was carefully crafted to undermine the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and other vital health care programs. Republican leadership rushed the partisan bill through both chambers of Congress in less than 24 hours and didn’t receive a single vote from Democratic lawmakers.
“Donald Trump just signed legislation attacking access to health care for millions of Americans and threatening the longevity of programs critical to the LGBTQ community,” said HRC Director of Government Affairs, David Stacy. “It is clear that this President is more than willing to sell out the American public for any perceived legislative victory.”
The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work, and in every community.
