This weekend, Donald Trump loudly proclaimed his promise to rip health care away from millions of Americans, saying Republicans ‘should never give up’ their goal of repealing Obamacare. It’s clear he and Kevin Kiley’s Republican House majority are still hellbent on taking away the essential health care programs that millions of working families rely on.
Repealing the Affordable Care Act would:
End critical protections for more than 100 million people with pre-existing conditions, allowing insurance companies to deny them coverage.
Allow insurance companies to reinstate annual and lifetime spending limits on coverage.
Put over 40 million people’s health insurance at risk.
Threaten coverage for 69 million people who rely on Medicaid.
Massively increase costs for seniors and people with disabilities who receive home care.
Cut access to substance abuse treatment and mental health care.
Force hundreds of rural hospitals to close.
We know Kevin Kiley and House Republicans will follow along: Kiley’s Republican Study Committee has already put the ACA on the chopping block.
DCCC Spokesperson Dan Gottlieb:
“Californians deserve to know where Kevin Kiley stands: is this vulnerable California Republican all-in on Trump’s spectacularly unpopular plan to take health care away from millions of Americans, raising costs and threatening lives? Kiley’s MAGA extremism and cruelty will cost Republicans the majority next year.”
