WASHINGTON, January 20, 2017 — Senate health committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today made the following statement on President Trump’s signing of an executive order to “ease the burden” of Obamacare:  

"President Trump is right to make the urgent work of rescuing Americans trapped in a collapsing Obamacare system a top priority on his first day in office.
