Dear Friends,

News that the Trump Administration’s Department of Justice will refuse to defend the constitutionality of key provisions of the historic, life-saving Affordable Care Act in an upcoming lawsuit in Texas proves there is a cynical sabotage campaign of Americans’ health care.

It’s unbelievable to me that once again, Trump and the Republicans want to take us back to the time when people with preexisting conditions could not get affordable insurance.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is literally a life and death situation.

And all of this is happening while millions of Americans are already facing unnecessary and escalating premium hikes because of the GOP tax scam and the GOP’s efforts to push families into shoddy junk plans.

The American people deserve better than the raw deal Republicans have been forcing on them in health care.  Democrats will continue to fight to protect Americans’ health care and lower their costs, and are offering A Better Deal to lower the surging costs of prescription drugs.

The Better Deal is the Democrats economic plan that works to raises wages and incomes of American workers and create millions of good-paying jobs; lowers the costs of living for families; and builds an economy that gives working Americans the tools to succeed in the 21st Century.

To read more on how their actions are gutting the ACA and putting coverage at risk for millions of Americans, read this piece: Trump Administration Would Allow Insurers to Discriminate Against Americans with Pre-Existing Conditions.
