Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today issued the following statement on the ruling of a Texas district court on the Affordable Care Act:
“Today’s ruling by a Texas district court judge puts health care for millions of Americans at risk. Not only does this ruling threaten coverage for pre-existing conditions, it would undo all consumer protections in the Affordable Care Act and the expansion of Medicaid.
“This absurd decision defies the law as written and Supreme Court precedent. Unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act in Congress, Republicans have turned to conservative judges to try and do the job.
“California and other states will appeal this ruling to protect the law that so many Americans depend on.”
