Trump Backing Lawsuit That Endangers Coverage for 4.8M Ohioans With Pre-Existing Conditions

COLUMBUS — Last week when he was in Toledo, Donald Trump lied about Ohio’s struggling economic situation — the Buckeye State has lost thousands of jobs since January 2019 — and today he doubled down on his health care lies, despite the fact that he is supporting a lawsuit that puts coverage at risk for 4.8 million Ohioans with pre-existing conditions.

Donald Trump is lying when he says he wants to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions. The truth is this: he is backing a lawsuit that jeopardizes health care for 4.8 million Ohioans with pre-existing conditions. Trump’s constant attacks on the Affordable Care Act are already taking a toll on the Buckeye State, as Ohio was one of eight states that saw its uninsured rate jump in 2018. One group that has been particularly hard hit is Ohio kids — 12,000 more children went without health coverage in 2018, compared to two years prior.

“It’s been one broken promise after another from Donald Trump, and Ohio families and kids are paying the price.”

Trump’s toxic agenda doesn’t just endanger health care — it also puts Ohio jobs at risk. Ohio Hospital Association said that “fully 25 percent of our hospitals in Ohio would be at risk of closure” if Trump succeeds in repealing the Affordable Care Act and ending the Medicaid expansion. The Economic Policy Institute estimated Ohio could lose out on more than 81,000 jobs because of Trump’s attacks on the ACA.
