Washington, DC–Tonight, Democratic presidential candidates met in Miami to discuss health care and other national issues at the first debate of the 2020 election. In response, Protect Our Care executive director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement:

“The American people saw a spirited discussion tonight in the first Democratic presidential debate on the issue of health care. While there were differences among the candidates and their plans, every person on that stage agreed that health care is a right, that costs should be reduced and coverage expanded. On the other hand, President Trump’s lawsuit to terminate the health care law and rip coverage away from millions took another step forward in court today. That’s the difference in this election.”
