Whitehouse Statement on Trump Refusal to Defend the ACA

Washington, DC – Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) released the following statement in response to the Trump administration’s refusal to defend key provisions of the Affordable Care Act:

“The President will stop at nothing to sabotage the Affordable Care Act and jeopardize the health care of millions of Americans.  These attacks are destabilizing American health insurance markets and unearthing problems that should be long gone—like denying lifesaving coverage due to pre-existing conditions.  The good news is states like Rhode Island continue to fulfil the promise of the Affordable Care Act and protect their residents’ health care, both in insurance markets and in court.  In the end, with the law and the American people on their side, they’ll win.”
