Thursday, December 19, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. –U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Health Care Subcommittee, released the following statement after the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals released their ruling on the Affordable Care Act:


“The Fifth Circuit ruling on the Republican-led lawsuit puts the health care of millions of Americans at risk. The fight is not over. We cannot go back to the days where people with pre-existing conditions were discriminated against, lifetime caps for care forced families into bankruptcy, mental health care was not covered, and seniors paid even more for expensive prescription drugs. Republicans need to stop their cruel attacks on Americans’ health care.”
