Wanted to share a little about the lawsuit that AG Hawley filed that would eliminate protections for preexisting conditions for millions of Americans, including kids like ours. Feel free to follow along. 1/
Here's the first page of the lawsuit seeking to declare our health care protections unconstitutional. AG Hawley didn't have to join this lawsuit, but he chose to, on behalf of his state. 2/
Here's the part that says the #ACA protects #PreExistingConditions, makes sure people can't be charged more for them, and requires that insurers cover essential health benefits.

That's the part that keeps our kids alive and our families out of bankruptcy. 3/
Here's the part of the lawsuit where you ask the court to eliminate those protections, and forbid the government from making sure that insurance companies offer health plans with those protections. 4/
And here is where you signed your name on the lawsuit that, again, would eliminate #PreExistingConditions protections for millions of Americans. 5/
The only action behind AG Hawley's campaign ad promise? Supporting a Senate bill on preexisting conditions that would... allow insurance companies to not cover preexisting conditions. 6/
Actions speak louder than words.

That goes for us, too. We can be angry that our health care is under attack. But if we want change, it comes from our actions.

Vote. 7/7

Friends, today's developments with regard to our health care made crystal clear #WhatsAtStake, the need to #StopKavanaugh, and the need to be a #HealthCareVoter this November.

Here's a quick explainer thread on what happened, and where we go from here. (1/)
In Texas today, a judge heard arguments on the lawsuit brought by several GOP State AGs and the Trump Administration to declare the #ACA, including #PreExistingConditions protections, unconstitutional. That judge seemed prepared to do just that. (2/)

modernhealthcare.com/article/201809…
If that one judge rules to strike down #PreExistingConditions protections, millions of Americans - including those of us with medically complex kids - would be at risk of losing health care.

Such a decision would be appealed, and could ultimately land at the Supreme Court. (3/)
