Trump Attacks Health Care During a Global Pandemic

The Trump administration hopes you didn’t notice this week that they’re still trying to throw out the Affordable Care Act.


Here in Ohio, the health care law repeal lawsuit would have devastating consequences if Trump and the GOP are successful. The Center for American Progress estimates that more than 860,000 Ohioans could lose their health coverage.


Nearly five million Ohioans with pre-existing conditions would lose critical protections, and as many as one-fourth of Ohio’s hospitals would be at risk for closure.


In 2019, Ohio Democrats sounded the alarm about the Affordable Care Act lawsuit and its potentially disastrous impact with events across the state.


One year later, the stakes are even higher.



Ohio Dems Call Out Trump’s Broken Promises in Lordstown

In response to Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to Ohio this week, the Ohio Democratic Party hosted a virtual roundtable discussion with Youngstown Mayor Tito Brown, as well as workers and community members impacted by the closing of the General Motors plant in Lordstown.


“Vice President Mike Pence’s visit is too little, too late for the people of the Mahoning Valley,” Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper said. “The Trump administration has ignored the workers of GM Lordstown for years, starting with his very first day in office, when GM laid off more than 1,000 workers. The workers of GM Lordstown begged Donald Trump to do something to help them for years — for years. He ignored their pleas. And then when the plant was finally shut down, Donald Trump had the audacity to go on Twitter and blame the workers and their union leaders.”


“It remains to be seen if this project will become what has been promised. I hope it does because the last thing the people of the Mahoning Valley need is more broken promises. Donald Trump told Ohioans, ‘don’t move, don’t sell your house.’ But that’s exactly what so many working families had to do.”
