Washington, DC — Today, Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), former CMS Administrator Andy Slavitt and Protect Our Care held a digital roundtable with health care advocates and reporters to discuss President Trump’s efforts to overturn the Affordable Care Act in Congress and the courts and to rip away Americans’ health care in the midst of a global pandemic. 

The roundtable discussion focused on how the Trump administration’s years-long sabotage of Americans’ health care has hindered our ability to adequately prepare for and respond to the coronavirus crisis. Participants also discussed the steps that Congress must take to address Americans’ health care needs during this crisis, including adequately funding testing, supporting Medicaid expansion and a special enrollment period for the uninsured, ending junk plans and stopping the Trump lawsuit that would rip health care away from more than 20 million Americans and end protections for 135 million people with pre-existing conditions.
