Trump Is Lying Again — This Time About Health Care

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 this week 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,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “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.”




State Rep. Erica Crawley said, “We need to make sure the people who are creating laws and policies understand what is true and what is happening. I don’t want another woman to die from something that is preventable.”

Ohio Legislative Black Caucus President Stephanie Howse recently traveled to El Salvador to learn how that nation’s abortion ban impacts women there, and she returned from her trip determined to improve how our state regards women’s health and reproductive freedom.

Howse said, “We want women and girls to truly understand that they are valued … that they understand they are here, that they belong here and as long as you’re here, we are going to be cheering you on … and we are going to protect you.”
