Trump Sabotages ACA
One of the key protections which the ACA provided to health care insurance buyers was that insurers were not allowed to deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. 20 states have filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the ACA, including this provision. The Trump administration has said it agrees with these states and will no longer defend the ACA against the lawsuit, breaking with longstanding custom whereby the current administration always defends existing laws. If the lawsuit prevails, millions of people across the country will lose their health care.
1. Contact the Department of Justice and ask them to continue defending the ACA against the 20-state lawsuit.
2. Contact your Member of Congress and ask them to protect their constitutents’ right to health care. Ask them to stand up to the Trump administration and defend the protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
