Washington, DC — Following oral arguments today in Texas v. United States, the lawsuit brought by the Trump administration and 19 Republican Attorneys General to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and destroy America’s health care, Protect Our Care executive director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement:

“The arguments President Trump made today to terminate American health care represent a clear and imminent threat to the health and well-being of millions of Americans. What happened in court was an unambiguous call for the destruction of American health care; stripping coverage from millions, ending protections for pre-existing conditions, and allowing insurance companies to raise costs across the board. Make no mistake, Trump is now one step closer in his years-long quest to dismantle the health care system, and the consequences for Americans could not be graver. While President Trump’s war on health care continues onward, Protect Our Care is mobilizing across the country to send a loud and clear message to Republicans: denounce this lawsuit and stop sabotaging health care, or face the political consequences.”
