Saturday, December 15, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) released the following statement on the ruling by a federal judge in Texas overturning the Affordable Care Act:


“This outrageous ruling threatens health coverage for millions of Americans. If you have a pre-existing condition, you could be denied insurance or have to pay more for your coverage. Without the federal tax credits, insurance would become unaffordable for many Americans and being a woman could once again be considered a pre-existing condition. Mental health services and affordable medicine would be put at risk. And Healthy Michigan that covers one million Michiganders would be gone! This ruling must be overturned.”
