BREAKING: New @OversightDems report shows how Californians could be impacted by the Trump Administration’s unwillingness to defend people with pre-existing conditions.

SPOILER ALERT: It’s terrible news for A LOT of Californians. More on the report here:
In California, if the Trump Administration is successful in its attempts to roll back Affordable Care Act protections, as many as 1,321,000 people could lose federal protections against coverage denials or premium increases, including as many as 78,000 people in #CA33 alone.
If President Trump and Republicans succeed in rolling back pre-existing condition protections, 50,000 #CA33 constituents with pre-existing health conditions are at risk of coverage loss or premium increases. #ProtectOurCare
Under the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies can't charge women more based on gender. Right here in #CA33, 47,000 women are at risk of coverage denials or premium increases if President Trump and the GOP have their way and further undermine America’s health care system.
As a result of the Trump Administration’s actions, as many as 1,212,000 women in California who currently purchase coverage through the individual market may lose federal protections because of their gender. 26,000 women in #CA33 could bear the full cost of premium increases.
As many as 856,000 older Californians may lose federal protections against coverage denials or premium increases as a result of the Trump Admin’s actions, including 34,000 in #CA33. Report shows 19,000 older adults in our district would bear the full cost of premium increases too
Thousands could lose health coverage and face exorbitant healthcare cost increases because the Trump Admin won’t defend every American’s right to affordable, quality coverage. In #CA33, 22,000 constituents with pre-existing health conditions are at risk of coverage denials.
The ACA prevents employer-sponsored health plans from excluding pre-existing health coverage. The Trump Admin’s decision not to defend this provision means 17,546,000 Californians with employer-sponsored insurance may be at risk of losing protections, including 382,000 in #CA33.
Protections for those with pre-existing health conditions remains a high priority for our constituents and it’s shocking that the Trump Administration is unwilling to stand up for families facing costly medical bills because of the whims of insurance companies. #ProtectOurCare
Protecting the popular clauses in the ACA that protects Americans from insurance discrimination seems like a no-brainer. But, for Congressional Republicans and the Trump Administration, their unending efforts to roll back health protections are as heartless as they are senseless.
This @OversightDems report shows, in alarming terms, that thousands of our constituents could lose health coverage and face exorbitant healthcare cost increases because of the Trump Admin's actions on #PreExistingConditions. RT and SHARE: #ProtectOurCare
Despite what @POTUS says, his administration is trying to rip away protections for those with #PreExistingConditions. New @OversightDems report shows how the Trump Administration's actions threaten millions of Californians.
