NCDP Statement on New GOP Effort to End Preexisting Condition Protections & Kick Millions Off Their Health Care

Raleigh – Following Republicans’ new court filing to overturn the entire Affordable Care Act, including protections for people with preexisting conditions, better maternity care, and the provision that allows kids to stay on their parents’ health care until age 26, North Carolina Democratic Party spokesman Robert Howard released the following statement:

“As long as Senator Thom Tillis is in office, Republicans in Washington will never stop attacking North Carolinians’ health care. Tillis claims he’s looking out for North Carolina but won’t speak out against a lawsuit that would end coverage protections for North Carolinians who have a pre-existing condition and would kick kids off their parents’ health care plans. Once again, Tillis says one thing but does the opposite, and North Carolina is right to not trust him with their health care.”
