Bipartisan Governors Slam Trump Administration For Attempting to Remove Pre-Existing Condition Protections

By June 18, 2018No Comments

This afternoon, nine bipartisan governors released a statement slamming the Trump Administration’s decision to argue that protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions are unconstitutional. Protect Our Care Campaign Chair Leslie Dach released the following statement in response:

“The Trump Administration’s decision to argue for discriminating against people with pre-existing conditions has been opposed by everyone from patient groups to doctors – and now you can add nine bipartisan governors to the list. These nine governors – three Republicans, an Independent, and five Democrats –  all recognize the importance of protecting the 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions and the cruelty of the Administration’s recent actions. These nine bipartisan governors are showing what true leadership looks like – the Administration would do well to follow their lead and reverse their current position.”
