Washington, DC — A brief was filed today by the Trump administration in the Texas lawsuit and, unsurprisingly, Trump’s lawyers tripled down on overturning America’s health care. If Trump’s lawsuit is successful, it will drive our system into chaos, rip away protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions, strip coverage from millions more and drive up costs for premiums and prescription drugs. In response, Protect Our Care chair Leslie Dach issued the following statement: 

“In his administration’s brief filed today, President Trump tripled down on sending our health care system into complete chaos. President Trump’s true health care plan couldn’t be clearer: If he wins in court, it means stripping health care from millions of Americans, ending protections for pre-existing conditions and driving up premiums and prescription drug up costs for tens of millions more. The American people overwhelmingly stand against President Trump and the Republican party’s relentless war on their health care.”
