Today’s Action: Save the ACA’s protections for pre-existing conditions

20 GOP-led states and Trump are attempting to once again dismantle Obamacare. After trying – and failing – to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) last year, they have a new scheme: bring it down by killing protections for anyone with pre-existing conditions.

Their goal is remove two key provisions that provide security for any pre-existing condition, which, if successful, would leave millions without insurance. And not just those with pre-existing conditions, but multitudes of healthier individuals caught in the damage to the ACA this could cause (on top of those who will already lose out, thanks to removal of the individual mandate as part of the GOP Tax Scam last year.)

16 mostly-blue states have countersued to protect their constituents from losing desperately needed healthcare…which means we’re now in an all-out legal battle to save lives.

From AL, AR, AZ, FL, GA, IN, KS, LA, ME, MO, MS, ND, NE, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, WI, or WV? Call or email your Governor and demand withdrawal from the lawsuit against the ACA.

From AK, CO, ID, IA, MD, MI, MT, NV, NH, NM, OH, OK, PA, or WY? Call or email your Governor and urge him or her to join the countersuit to protect the ACA.

From CA, CT, DC, DE, HI, IL, KY, MA, MN, NC, NJ, NY, OR, RI, VA, VT, or WA? Call or email your Governor and thank him or her for leading the charge to protect the ACA.

Legal experts are calling the premise of the GOP’s argument faulty at best. But on June 7, Trump’s Department of Justice (whose job it is to uphold the law) told the courts they wouldn’t defend the ACA (which is the law) and urged the court to dismantle Obama’s legacy legislation — a direct contradiction of Attorney General Jeff Sessions sworn testimony before Congress. But we know better than to take Sessions at his word when he’s under oath, don’t we?

Which isn’t just troubling for our healthcare system — it’s also an undermining of our democracy.

Regardless of the outcome, you can bet on seeing spikes in your insurance premium this year, thanks to the GOP’s incessant sabotage of our healthcare system. But we’ve got to work now to make sure that’s the worst that happens.

Call your Governor and urge them to save Americans with pre-existing conditions and uphold the ACA by dropping the lawsuit or joining the protective countersuit. And remind them that we’re the ones doing the voting, not insurance companies.
