WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib released the following statement regarding the Department of Justice’s support of a district court decision declaring the Affordable Care Act to be unconstitutional:

“Trump and his DOJ support stripping healthcare from more than 30 million Americans—and going back to the dark days of denying people care because of “pre-existing conditions,” who we are and what we are born with. It’s a clear message from this corrupt administration that Trump and the GOP believe millions should lose their care, suffer, and die, all to line the pockets of their health insurance industry friends.

“As we fight this move, it’s important to note that this is a startling reminder of why we need to loudly and proudly support and fight for Medicare for All, which would ensure every American’s healthcare needs are met. We must expand healthcare access, not shrink it. Only one party is interested in doing that, and we must lead boldly, with big ideas that will save people’s lives.”
