Sugar Land, TX — Today, President Trump released a video of his 60 Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl. In the interview, Trump says he hopes that the Supreme Court ends the Affordable Care Act. When asked repeatedly what his plan would be to protect those with pre-existing conditions, he was unable to provide an answer.
“Today, the president revealed what many of us have known for a long time now: there is no plan to replace coverage for pre-existing conditions if the Affordable Care Act is repealed. There is no reason for anyone to believe Troy Nehls’ empty promises on health care. While President Trump and Troy Nehls play politics with our health, I am committed to protecting Texans’ health care, lowering the cost of care and prescription drugs, and ensuring that no one has to give up their private insurance if it works for them.”
