Washington, D.C. – (January 11, 2021) – Matt Eyles, president and CEO of America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), issued this statement following last week’s violent events at the U.S. Capitol Building:
Last week’s violence and the incitement of it are shameful, abhorrent, and intolerable. We have been clear: We cannot condemn those actions more strongly. Our nation, the laws of our land, and the safety of our citizens and the political leaders who serve them, are paramount. These priorities will be front and center as we immediately review our policies governing political giving. At this time of global pandemic and economic downturn, there are so many health care and other enormous challenges that our nation must face and solve together. We continue to urge our political leaders to come together in unity and peace for the strength of our nation.
