PRESS CALL: Protect Our Care Reacts to Resounding SCOTUS Health Care Victory

Washington, DC — Today, June 17 at 12:30 ET, Andy Pincus, a noted Supreme Court expert who played an important role in defending the Affordable Care Act against Republican legal challenges at the Supreme Court, along with Protect Our Care will hold a press call to react to the Supreme Court decision in California v. Texas, the Trump-Republican lawsuit to overturn the ACA. Today, in an 7-2 ruling, the Supreme Court delivered a massive repudiation of the Republican war on health care. By throwing the lawsuit out on standing, the court protected the health care coverage of more than 20 million Americans and prevented more than 135 million people with pre-existing conditions from losing the protections they rely on, and many other key ACA provisions. The decision to affirm the ACA should mean the end of the road for Republicans’ endless attacks on the law and increases the momentum behind President Biden’s and the Democratic majorities in Congress to deliver on their health care agenda that voters elected them to enact.
