The Affordable Care Act is back in court today. Let’s talk about it. (THREAD)
One of President Trump’s 1st priorities was an attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act—including its protections for those with pre-existing conditions. This effort failed because he couldn’t come up with a new plan, and even Republicans wouldn’t repeal the healthcare law.
So they tried again. This time, they argued in federal court that the entire ACA should be overturned. And keep in mind they STILL haven’t proposed an alternative plan for what would happen if the lawsuit is successful.
This is a big deal! This lawsuit could jeopardize lives of the 20 million people. They. Have. No. Alternative. Healthcare. Plan.
In April, I condemned the Trump Administration’s legal campaign to eliminate all of the healthcare protections provided by the ACA, including protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions >> porter.house.gov/media/press-re…
Orange County families have told me time and again that they’re worried about how they’ll be able to access affordable, high-quality health insurance. Instead of working to help OC families, the Administration continues to move us in the wrong direction.
In May, I supported legislation to restrict “junk” plans that don’t protect those with pre-existing conditions, which included my amendment to prohibit the Admin from doing anything to reduce the number of individuals enrolled in comprehensive coverage. porter.house.gov/media/press-re…
Last month, a House-passed bill included my provision to support improved analysis of populations not enrolling in health coverage. This would help us fulfill the promise of healthcare to communities of color and other underserved communities. porter.house.gov/media/press-re…
Trust me, I know the ACA is far from perfect. That’s why I support bold action to deliver on better healthcare for all Americans. But repealing the ACA will set us backwards.
