Washington, DC — Donald Trump and his Republican allies have waged a relentless war on Americans’ health care for four years, sabotaging care and doing everything in their power to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and the protections it provides for more 135 million Americans with pre-existing conditions. The Trump administration will argue before the Supreme Court days after the election in the middle of a deadly pandemic that the entire ACA should be struck down. Now, more than ever, health care is on the ballot. This guide shows what’s at stake as Americans head to the polls to make their voices heard and the disastrous health care results of Donald Trump’s presidency.
“This is a health care election. After four years, voters finally have a chance to hold President Trump accountable for his war on Americans’ health care,” said Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse. “Since taking office, he has made the wrong choices for Americans’ health care at every turn. He’s completely failed to respond to coronavirus. He’s threatened to overturn the Affordable Care Act. When he couldn’t accomplish that legislatively, he backed a lawsuit to dismantle the health care law and installed handpicked anti-ACA justices on the Supreme Court to do his bidding. On top of all that, he continues to lie about having a plan to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions. Another four years of Trump would be a disaster for health care.”
