NEW DNC VIDEO: Trump’s Chaos Presidency Created a Health Care Crisis
August 26, 2020
The DNC War Room is releasing a new video today highlighting the ways Trump’s failed coronavirus response created a health care crisis for American families — and how he’s only making things worse by continuing his attacks on the Affordable Care Act.
“Nearly 180,000 Americans have lost their lives to the coronavirus because Trump refused to listen to the experts or take the virus seriously. And now, seven months after the first cases were reported in the U.S., Trump is continuing his reckless effort to repeal coverage for millions of Americans while offering no plan to combat the virus,” said DNC War Room senior spokesperson and advisor Lily Adams. “America leads the world in coronavirus deaths and cases, hospitals across the country are still overwhelmed, millions with preexisting conditions may lose their coverage — and Trump is only making things worse.”
Trump has failed to contain COVID-19 because he didn’t listen to experts, didn’t take it seriously, and didn’t have a plan. Now he wants to repeal health care for millions, including protections for tens of millions of people with preexisting conditions, during a pandemic. Instead of coming up with a plan to combat the spread of the virus, Trump has continued his efforts to repeal Obamacare, which expanded health insurance to 20 million Americans. If he succeeds, insurance companies could reject coverage for as many as 133 million Americans with preexisting conditions.
