Arguments in Texas’ lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act start next week and we’re gearing up to defend the ACA in court.
When the Trump administration declined to defend the healthcare law against this challenge, we stepped up to save protections for people with pre-existing conditions and make sure everyone can afford the care they need.
This lawsuit is a reckless and political attempt to destroy the ACA that would strip millions of families of access to affordable care.
If Texas and other Republican-led states win, insurance companies could again deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. It would mean an end to Medicaid expansion and to tax credits that make insurance affordable for working families. And it would strip away billions of dollars in healthcare funding.
We cannot let Republicans roll back the progress we’ve made and risk the health of millions of Americans.
