“Democrats Are Very Clear on Who We’re Listening to in This Fight: Patients and Families Who Are Terrified About What’s at Stake for Their Health Care and Rights”
Last night, U.S. Senators Patty Murray (D-WA), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Bob Casey (D-PA), Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Maggie Hassan (D-NH) joined Protect Our Care to discuss what’s at stake for health care and the Affordable Care Act ahead of the final Senate vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court. One week after Election Day, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in California v. Texas, Trump’s lawsuit to completely dismantle the Affordable Care Act. Senate Democrats highlighted that, if successful, the Trump-Republican lawsuit would strip over 20 million Americans of their health coverage and end protections for 135 million Americans with pre-existing conditions in the midst of the worst public health crisis in a century.
