CDP Statement re: Lawsuit to Overturn the Affordable Care Act

Colorado Democratic Party Chair Morgan Carroll released the following statement following oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals on the Republican lawsuit to repeal the Affordable Care Act:

“Since he was sworn into office, Donald Trump has made it his mission to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would recklessly end healthcare protections for 750,000 Coloradans with pre-existing conditions — and Republicans like Cory Gardner have worked right alongside him to attack people’s healthcare. What’s worse is for all their talk ‘repeal and replace’, we have yet to see Gardner and Trump actually show a plan of their own that would replace the ACA.”

“Coloradans know that if Trump and the Republicans’ plan to destroy the ACA through this lawsuit succeed, millions of Coloradans could lose their healthcare coverage and people with pre-existing conditions will once again be able to be denied coverage. Colorado Democrats have fought to protect Coloradans’ access to quality, affordable healthcare at the state and federal level, and they will continue to fight against this reckless assault on healthcare.”
