Washington, D.C. – Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement after the announcement of a vacancy on the Supreme Court. Last month, President Trump joined a lawsuit to overturn protections of health care for the 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions.

“Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans have voted to repeal health care protections and gone to court to overturn them, but they must be stopped from shoving another radical right-wing justice onto the Supreme Court who will join in their crusade against our care. The Trump Administration is explicitly asking the court to overturn protections for the 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions, and now it is every Senator’s responsibility to stand against any appointee who would vote to strip away these critical health protections for hundreds of millions of Americans.”
