“Gone” Shows What’s at Stake If the Supreme Court Strikes Down Affordable Care Act
Washington, DC — Protect Our Care launched a new TV ad showing what’s at stake if the Senate confirms anti-ACA Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. “Gone” will run on cable, including on Morning Joe and Fox & Friends, the week of Judge Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings. The ad holds Senate Republicans accountable for rushing through President Trump’s nominee in hopes that she will help them do what they haven’t been able to accomplish legislatively — completely dismantle Affordable Care Act. The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case one week after the election. If successful, President Trump’s lawsuit would rip away health care from more than 20 million Americans and end protections for more than 135 million people with pre-existing conditions all in the middle of an ever-worsening pandemic.
“Coronavirus is in the White House, in the Senate and raging across America, and while Senate Republicans refuse to negotiate a pandemic relief bill, they will stop at nothing to jam through the nomination of an anti-ACA justice to the Supreme Court,” said Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach. “Judge Coney Barrett was chosen because she opposes the Affordable Care Act, and Republicans are hell bent to overturn the law and leave millions of Americans without health care during the worst public health crisis our nation has faced in a century, which would throw our entire health care system into chaos.”
Our health care is on the line.
One week after election day, the Supreme Court will hear President Trump’s lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act in the middle of a pandemic.
President Trump has made it clear that he nominated a justice who will take away Americans’ health care.
If President Trump gets his way…
Health care for more than 20 million Americans…
Protections for 135 million Americans with pre-existing conditions, plus everyone who contracts coronavirus…
Coverage for millions who have lost their jobs, at a time over 60 million Americans have filed for unemployment.
Don’t let President Trump and Republicans rip away health care from millions of Americans when they need it most.
