Rep. Jackie Speier ( D-CA) leads an "HR 3" chant. Trump's lack of a healthcare plan has left him open to criticism that he has not put enough work into finding a way to reduce rising insurance costs that burden middle-class Americans. "We will never let socialism destroy American healthcare!" Trump said. Democratic women stood and chanted "HR 3" - a reference to a Democratic bill that would lower drug costs.
