Washington, D.C. — According to new reporting, the Trump administration may try to delay the final outcome of their Texas lawsuit against health care by seeking a stay if the Court invalidates all or part of the ACA. Knowing their effort to overturn our health care law is a political loser, the administration hopes to slow-roll the case to avoid a Supreme Court battle during President Trump’s re-election bid. Brad Woodhouse, executive director of Protect Our Care, released the following statement in response:

“President Trump has no problem going to court to rip health care away from millions of Americans and expose 135 million people with pre-existing conditions to discrimination by insurance companies — he just doesn’t want you to know about it before the election. Rather than read the writing on the wall and abandon their disastrous lawsuit, the Republicans are trying to slow-walk the health care debate to save themselves at the ballot box.”
