rushing through a nominee to gut our healthcare?

Mitch McConnell is rushing to get Trump's Supreme Court nominee approved as fast as possible. This is disgustingly hypocritical! (Remember Judge Merrick Garland?) And they’re doing it during the most important election of our lifetimes.

But, this is about more than hypocrisy and extreme partisan politics. It is also about the Republicans' plan to gut the Affordable Care Act — which provides healthcare to thousands of Oregonian families — during a pandemic. If they have their way, you can be sure every Oregonian who contracted COVID-19 will be treated by the big insurance companies as having a pre-existing condition — and you know what that means for coverage and rates.

Democratic Attorneys General have led the defense of the ACA. Our challenge to this unlawful Republican assault on our healthcare is now before the U.S. Supreme Court, with arguments scheduled to be heard shortly after the November election. Placing another Trump appointee on the Court will put millions of Americans’ affordable care on the chopping block.

Healthcare must be seen as a human right — not a privilege only for those who can afford it. Will you stand with me in this fight today by chipping in a donation of $50 (or whatever you can afford)?

While Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and Republican Attorneys General across the country are playing politics with people’s lives, I’m proud to be fighting for a more equitable healthcare system that won’t unjustly punish the nearly 133 million Americans who have pre-existing conditions. As the People’s Attorney, I know it's my job to stand up to the Trump administration. I will not let up — and I will not let you down.

This is the most important election of our lifetimes. Let’s leave it all on the field.

Thanks,

Ellen
