President Trump has made it clear that he wants the Supreme Court to strike down the Affordable Care Act. If he has his way, 2.8 million Arizonans living with preexisting conditions will lose critical health care protections — and that number will only grow if complications from COVID-19 joins the list of deniable preexisting conditions.
Since he started running for president, Trump has said that he will have a plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, and to protect preexisting conditions. He’s had four years to level with the American people and put forward that plan. Now, one week away from the election, he’s once again saying “trust me — I’ll figure it out later.”
Simply put: Trump doesn’t have a plan. The only plan he has is to get re-elected.
There is only one candidate in the race who fought to expand access to health care for more than 20 million Americans, and to protect more than 100 million Americans with pre-existing conditions. That’s Joe Biden. And as president, he will build on that work.
