Did you happen to see President Trump’s tweets yesterday? Even for him, they were absurd and pathetic.
Trump took to Twitter to try to rewrite history on his healthcare record.
Let’s do a quick fact check.
Trump: “I was the person who saved Pre-Existing Conditions in your Healthcare.”
False. In fact, Trump has done everything he can to undermine protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions, from spending two years trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act’s protections, to authorizing the sale of short term health plans that don’t have to cover pre-existing conditions so Americans unknowingly lose their protections.
Trump: “...if Republicans win in court and take back the House of Representatives, your healthcare, that I have now brought to the best place in many years, will become the best ever, by far.”
False. The Trump Administration is currently in the courts trying, yet again, to get the entire Affordable Care Act struck down, which would mean 20 million Americans lose their care and all the protections put in place, including protections for pre-existing conditions, would go away — immediately.
Trump: “I will always protect your Pre-Existing Conditions, the Dems will not!”
You guessed it: False. Trump STILL hasn’t put forward a health care plan that would do anything other than make millions of Americans lose their care and mean worse health insurance for millions more. He’s had three years to do it.
The House Democratic Majority, elected by you in the 2018 blue wave, time and time again stopped Republicans from repealing the Affordable Care Act and gutting protections for pre-existing conditions.
House Democrats were elected to protect your healthcare, and we will.
If you’re with us, pitch in $10 or whatever you can afford today to support my re-election campaign and help me defend vulnerable Democrats on the frontlines all over the country so we can continue to protect our care in Congress.

No question, the only way we can defend our healthcare is by holding our House majority this November. Together, I know we’ll succeed.
