In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the biggest economic downturn since the Great Depression, The Trump Administration and its Allies in state Government are continuing their attempts to eliminate the ACA and topple our health care system through the courts.
The Health Care Repeal Lawsuit, also known as California v. Texas (formerly Texas v. US) is set to be heard by the Supreme Court on November 10, 2020. If successful, it will end the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and all of the consumer protections it provides, leaving millions of Americans without preventive care, treatment options or long-term coverage in the wake of COVID-19.
As the nation mourns the sad loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and with just weeks until the 2020 election, the Trump administration and Senate Republicans are rushing to confirm a conservative Supreme Court pick, Amy Coney Barrett, who shares their aim of ending the Affordable Care Act and the health and economic security it provides to millions of people across the country; overturning Roe v. Wade and rolling back reproductive rights; and thwarting efforts to advance equity in all areas of our society. Blocking this Supreme Court nomination is critical to safeguarding these protections.
