Washington, December 18, 2019

Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA), a Member of the House Committee on Ways and Means, issued the following statement today on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling siding with Republican-led states and the Trump Administration against the Affordable Care Act:

“This ruling underscores the fact that the end result of Republicans’ healthcare vision would be the evisceration of protections for people with preexisting conditions, tens of millions of Americans losing coverage, and more expensive healthcare for much of the country.”
