🚨🚨The lies about the Trump Administration wanting to #ProtectOurCare stop TODAY! The dismantling of the law of the land has been going on since day 1 of this Administration to remove protections for 130M w/#PreExistingConditions

After failing to repeal the #ACA in Congress in 2017, in 2/2018, 18 @GOP AG's & 2 GOP Governors Filed a Lawsuit to Repeal the #ACA in the U.S. Northern District of TX. 2/
.@GOP officials claim since #ACA’s individual mandate fine was repealed in 2017 tax law, the mandate can no longer be considered a “tax.” b/c of this change, they argue the mandate is now unconstitutional & the entire ACA must be struck down.

These are their names. 3/
6/2018: The DOJ filed a brief declining to defend the constitutionality of the #ACA Administration asks court to strike down 2 provisions that bars insurers from denying coverage to people w/#PreExistingConditions & allows higher premiums to people b/c of health status. 4/
In the absence of the executive branch defending federal law, a coalition of Democratic attorneys general have stepped up to #ProtectOurCare 5/

12/2018: U.S. District Court judge strikes down the entire #ACA in an action brought by 20 states’ attorneys general. DOJ urges the court to invalidate the ACA’s protections for people w/#PreExistingConditions; the judge’s opinion goes further and strikes down the entire law. 6/
January 2019: @SenateDems and I have been following court case since its inception, we make a video encouraging people to share their #PreExistingConditions stories with their representatives. Like in 2017, stories are what saved #ACA & #ProtectOurCare 7/

On 2/6/19, I testified in Congress (3:32) "If you think #PreExistingConditions protections aren’t important, remember someone you love could have an accident, be DX'd w/#cancer, or #Lupus, & that will change how you think about this." #ProtectOurCare 8/

March 2019: I teamed up with @RepJoeKennedy to tell us what it would mean for you if this Administration succeeded in gutting #PreExistingConditions protections. 9/

April 2019: I teamed up with Senate HELP Committee Democratic Leader @PattyMurray b/c people with #PreExistingConditions it’s a matter of life and death to #ProtectOurCare 10/

May 2019: The Trump administration formally declared its opposition to the entire #ACA, not just #PreExistingConditions, arguing in a federal appeals court filing that the signature Obama-era legislation was unconstitutional and should be struck down. 11/
May 2019: I made this video with @SenDougJones to fight to #ProtectOurCare The protections of 130M w/#PreExistingConditions are not only at STAKE but #Medicaid Expansion I live with 10+ PEC's including #Lupus There are days I can't get out of bed. 12/

On 7/9/19, the case to strike down #ACA & #PreExistingConditions protections for 130M will be heard.

I've risked my health to travel to DC 19x to fight to #ProtectOurCare
