In The Battlegrounds: Democrats Blast Trump On ACA Lawsuit

Following the 5th Circuit’s decision in Texas v. United States, Democrats on the ground are holding Trump and the GOP accountable for their broken promises on health care.

As Donald Trump continues his campaign to spike health care costs and slash coverage protections for people with preexisting conditions, Democratic state parties across the country are calling out Republicans’ shameless broken promises to working families. See for yourself:

In Michigan:

  • Lavora Barnes Statement on Trump’s Latest Assault on the Affordable Care Act. “Donald Trump and his Republican cronies have been relentless in their attempts to end the Affordable Care Act, and now they’re closer than ever. With this decision, critical protections for preexisting conditions would be gutted, health care costs would skyrocket, and millions of Americans would lose their health care.”

In Wisconsin:

  • WisDems Chair Statement on 5th Circuit Court Health Care Ruling. “Wisconsin Democrats will continue to fight against Donald Trump and the GOP’s monstrous attacks on everyday people who are simply trying to live healthy and fulfilling lives. We are going to make sure every voter in this state is aware of the President’s broken promises and the steps he has taken to try to take away their health care.”

In Pennsylvania:

In Florida:

  • Trump Once Again Jeopardizing Health Care for Millions of Floridians. “The Florida Democratic Party will ensure Floridians do not forget Trump’s cruel efforts to undermine their health care when they cast their vote in 2020.”

In Ohio:

  • Ohio Dems Statement On Ruling In Affordable Care Act Lawsuit. “Trump and the GOP have never had a plan for health care — this lawsuit that he’s cheerleading is the Republican plan. It will rip coverage away from more than half a million Ohioans who are covered under the Medicaid expansion, take protections away from nearly five million Ohioans with pre-existing conditions and put as many as one-fourth of Ohio’s hospitals at risk for closure.”

In Nevada:

  • Trump Continues Shameless Attack on Nevadans’ Health Care. “Three years ago, Donald Trump campaigned in Nevada promising us better, more affordable health care. Instead, he’s led a twisted fight to rip away coverage from nearly 300,000 Nevadans, spike costs, and deny protections to millions of Americans with preexisting conditions.”

In New Hampshire:

  • Why Republican Senate Candidates Are Cheering. “New Hampshire families will remember who focused on making a difference for them, and who stood in line with Trump and his efforts to take away their care.”

In Maine:

In Virginia:

In Oregon:

  • Trump Wages Ruthless Attack on Oregonians’ Health Care. “It’s clear that Donald Trump will stop at nothing to destroy our health care. He’s proven that he has no qualms about breaking his most basic promises to working families, leading a cruel campaign to spike health care costs, strip coverage from nearly 400,000 Oregonians, and eliminate protections for millions of people with preexisting conditions.”
