Trump and Hawley Lie About Their Record on Pre-existing Conditions Protections

Washington, DC Following a campaign stop with Josh Hawley, President Trump continued to

flat-out lie about his Administration’s plan to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions.  Brad Woodhouse, executive director of Protect Our Care, said in response:

“It’s ludicrous for Donald Trump to say he and Josh Hawley want to protect people with pre-existing conditions when they have literally gone to court to take those protections away. Just last month, Hawley said replacing the ACA would be “a top priority” for him in the Senate and right now Donald Trump is in the process of jamming a rubber stamp on his anti-health care agenda on the U.S. Supreme Court. Republicans like Josh Hawley and Donald Trump  present a real and present danger to the health care of Americans and people don’t need to look any further than their own words and actions for proof.”
