“If the 20 states prevail, over 50 million Americans with pre-existing conditions could lose partial or whole coverage, or face much higher premiums.”
20 states are suing to remove pre-existing condition coverage from the ACA/Obamacare. Republicans can’t repeal it outright without significant public backlash, so they’ve been destroying it from within for years which started when Republican Marco Rubio withheld funding to make people’s premiums go down.
A lawsuit by 20 U.S. states seeks to invalidate pre-existing condition protections contained in the Affordable Care Act. Removal of the pre-existing conditions clause may trigger a large number of state legislatures to attempt to enact partial or full protections.
