Ft Lauderdale, FL – For Our Future Florida State Director Ashley Walker issued the following statement after reports that Trump’s Justice Department has issued a new filing in the Pam-Bondi-assisted lawsuit challenging the individual mandate which asks courts to completely invalidate the Affordable Care Act, not just protections for pre-existing conditions:
“This decision is reckless and should worry every single Floridian. No other state has more residents enrolled in the ACA and 7.8 million people in this state have pre-existing conditions.
“Democrats have made clear they are steadfast on protecting and expanding access to affordable health care. And voters agree, that’s why they soundly rejected Trump’s health care sabotage agenda at the polls in November. Yet Trump and Republicans continue to be obsessed with stripping away care on behalf of corporations and wealthy donors.”
