Demand Justice Statement Regarding Supreme Court Agreeing to Hear ACA Case

03.02.20

WASHINGTON, DC—Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon made the following statement Monday in response to the announcement that the Supreme Court will hear another case about the Affordable Care Act:

“The Supreme Court was just catapulted to the top of the agenda in 2020. While conservatives have historically been more engaged in the fight to control the courts, this case will awaken our side to the urgency of the crisis facing our third branch of government.

“This is bad news for a lot of politicians who wanted to keep this case away from the Supreme Court and out of the headlines until after 2020. Donald Trump will have to defend his Justice Department’s consistent support for a lawsuit that would kick millions of Americans off their health care. Anyone who voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh will have to answer for voting to knowingly put the Affordable Care Act at risk. That puts Susan Collins’ claims to support the ACA on a collision course with reality.”
