Rep. Cárdenas on #WhatsAtStake with Trump’s Supreme Court Pick

Washington, D.C. – Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, is a danger to healthcare access in America. For years, our country’s health care system has included critical protections for patients and working families, but now Trump and Republicans are attacking our country’s health laws through the courts, and Kavanaugh could be the deciding vote.  This would mean:

  • Insurance companies can deny coverage for diabetes, cancer, asthma and other pre-existing conditions.
  • American children and families will be kicked off Medicaid. 
  • Young people will no longer keep their parents’ coverage until the age of 26.

The American people won’t be fooled. Time again and time again, President Trump has proven he doesn’t care about our seniors, our sick, or our children. Kavanaugh will be more of the same, and if confirmed will be in firm position to take away healthcare from everyday Americans. We must do all we can to stop it.
