Statement from Jenny Lawson, executive director, Planned Parenthood Votes:
"The Trump administration has said the quiet part out loud — they have no plan for the American people except to take their health care away. This comes as no surprise after they have spent the past three years trying to kick people off their health insurance, undermining protections for pre-existing conditions, blocking access to Planned Parenthood, and gutting Medicaid as we know it. And as this week's Trump budget and the recent efforts to greenlight massive cuts to Medicaid make clear, they have no plans to stop attacking our health care and rights. Voters this November want a president and Senate who will protect their access to health care, not do everything in their power to take it away."
Reminder: Repealing the Affordable Care Act, as the president and Senate Republicans like Cory Gardner, Martha McSally, Thom Tillis, and Joni Ernst have tried to do, would result in tens of millions of people losing their health insurance, the loss of protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and the elimination of essential health benefits like maternity coverage, and coverage of no-copay birth control in all private health plans.
