Trump Celebrates Taking Health Care From Millions
December 17, 2018
Trump immediately celebrated Friday’s court ruling to overturn the Affordable Care Act. What Trump is really celebrating is taking health care away from millions and putting tens of millions more at risk of not being able to get the care they need.
Trump immediately celebrated Friday’s court ruling to overturn the Affordable Care Act.
CNN: “Trump immediately tweeted in celebration on Friday and called on Congress to act.”
Trump: “Wow, but not surprisingly, ObamaCare was just ruled UNCONSTITUTIONAL by a highly respected judge in Texas. Great news for America!”
Trump said the ruling in favor of a Republican-backed lawsuit to invalidate the ACA was “a repeal and replace, handled a little bit differently.”
Here’s what Trump is celebrating:
Potentially taking health care coverage away from around 20 million Americans.
Putting as many as 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions at risk.
Confusing tens of thousands of Americans who typically enroll in health care on the final days of open enrollment, making it harder for them to get the care they need.
