President Donald Trump and Republicans — who tried to kill and/or weaken insurance coverage for people with pre-existing medical conditions — are pretending they support coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
ThinkProgress posted a video (top of page) of the Republicans who are lying about supporting pre-existing conditions, and noted:
With midterm elections around the corner and health care clearly at the forefront for many voters, numerous Republicans are scrambling to explain votes to weaken protections for people with pre-existing conditions, including the overwhelming majority of vulnerable House Republicans.
Trump’s Justice Department claimed in court in June that protections in Obamacare for pre-existing conditions were unconstitutional, noted CNN.
Undeterred by facts, Trump falsely claimed that “all Republicans support people with pre-existing conditions” and lied by saying “Democrats will destroy your Medicare” in a tweet on Oct. 18:
All Republicans support people with pre-existing conditions, and if they don’t, they will after I speak to them. I am in total support. Also, Democrats will destroy your Medicare, and I will keep it healthy and well!
