It’s Not Over! Trump can still take health care away
from millions in one easy step
He can be the one to cause Obamacare to “explode” by wrecking consumer protections against high out-of-pocket costs.
If Trump does not defend a lawsuit filed by Republicans in Congress against the Affordable Care Act, insurance premiums will skyrocket and many more health insurance companies will flee, taking health care away from millions of working families.
The Affordable Care Act pays health insurance companies to keep out-of-pocket costs low for millions of working families. But Republicans in Congress filed a lawsuit to stop the Obama administration from making those payments to insurance companies. The lawsuit is now stuck in court – waiting for the Trump administration to act.
If the Trump administration decides not to fight the lawsuit, those payments will stop and insurance companies will send premiums through the roof and stop selling health insurance all together.
President Trump tweeted “Obamacare will explode.” We need to stop him from pulling the trigger by doing nothing. Instead we need Trump to defend the payments.
Congress must act too!
Congress should approve keeping the payments that lower deductibles and co-payments for working families. At the same time, Members of Congress should urge Trump to defend the payments in court so people can keep their care.
We stopped Congress from repealing and replacing Obamacare because that would take health care away from millions of Americans. We must keep the pressure on Congress to keep consumer protections against high-out-of-pocket costs.
