Attorney General Becerra Denounces Court Ruling Declaring the ACA Unconstitutional, Vows to Continue the Fight

Sacramento, CA...Attorney General Becerra today issued the following statement regarding Judge Reed O’Connor’s decision in Texas v. U.S., declaring the Affordable Care Act (ACA) unconstitutional, but denying the injunction: “Today’s ruling is an assault on 133 million Americans with preexisting conditions, on the 20 million Americans who rely on the ACA for healthcare, and on America’s faithful progress toward affordable healthcare for all Americans,” said Attorney General Becerra. “The ACA has already survived more than 70 unsuccessful repeal attempts and withstood scrutiny in the Supreme Court. Today’s misguided ruling will not deter us: our coalition will continue to fight in court for the health and wellbeing of all Americans.”

      The only reasons the Liberal Socialist Democrats refuse to fund the wall is because they hate Trump and our country. They are traitors to their oath to defend and protect the Constitution.

    ACA destroyed affordable care. My insurance was going to be $1,400 a month with a $7,000 deductible. That isn't health care, that is theft

      No matter what side of the political spectrum I fall on the ACA "obamacare" was a disaster for my household.
      As a business owner in my 40's with a wife and three children I paid an exorbitant amount. It was insane.
      Far cheaper before the politicians decided to get into my pockets to "help me"

      Fact is time has turned the parties, the heavy spending republicans are no more, Democrats have now gone full steam in NO tax breaks, HIGH costs and just insanity.
      How anyone can support the left in their march towards socialism is beyond me.

      But this idiot will fight everything republicians put out, do press conferences on his own actions and run around like an idiot.
      All the while having tax payers foot the bill.
      Thank GOD I moved my family out of California so I dont have to pay for this fool.

        Health insurance is expensive, no argument. So are medical bills when one is hospitalized or has a terminal illness. We pay because we hope we never have to use it but it keeps families from going bankrupt. As a business owner myself, I see far too many in this county thinking health care is a right that someone else needs to pay for. The same ones that have plenty of cash to buy the booze, cigarettes and pay no attention to diet or staying fit. Those - along with big pharma - are the ones who are truly driving up the costs of heath care - you can't tell me what to do but of course you'll cover my complications from diabetes or cancer.

    Right, we can go back to so many in Calaveras showing up at the hospital and clinics would coverage... and expecting the rest of us to pay for it. Everyone should pay something according to his or her means, otherwise it's another expected handout.

      Obamacare is all about expecting the rest of us to pay for it.
      Everyone does not pay something according to his or her means, it's simply another expected handout.
      That is what's wrong with the Socialist medical program titled The ACA.

    The trend by the Republicans is going backwards in health care, education, science, climate.

    The America that went to the moon, is now headed into darkness in so many ways.

    Our claim to fame now is war , and wealth inequality, with all the social ills attributed with the transfer of wealth to the very few.

    The Obamacare premiums went DOWN for this year, the program is working.

    The US is at #20 for health care for a country's population.
    Are those who hate Obamacare proud of this?
    The leaders all 19 countries with better health care are all Medicare for all programs.
    Even the Koch funded report showed if the US went to single payer- Medicare for all, it would save the country $10-15 Billion per year., with better health outcomes for every American.The savings alone in drug pricing is huge. A basket of common drugs used in the top 6 countries excluding the US, is 65% less that what the American public pays.

    To applaud the hope of eliminating the ACA, or going to Medicare for all is pure Ignorance.

It took this long for someone to decide what every working person in this country figured out when Barry lied over and over about keeping your doctor, and how cheap it would be! It takes a perfect dip chit to think that was good healthcare! Let's see if the commies want to work with the Repubs and do something good for the country! It's time to contemplate being yellow vests in this country, politician's talk, argue and get nothing done year after year! They don't care about the working man, they are too buy giving everything away to those who get everything free!

    FOR THE NEOCON, WHO CLAIMS TO HAVE MOVED OUT OF CALIFORNIA, I'M SURE MOVED TO HIS WHITE POWER SWASTIKAS IN MONTANA. MAYBE MOVED NEXT DOOR TO MARK FUHRMAN.
    THAT SO CALLED "BEANER" IS HIGHLY EDUCATE AND OVER ACHIEVER. HE MAKES MORE MONEY THAN YOUR WHOLE TRUMPTURD NEIGHBORHOOD COMBINED. YOUR JEALOUSY SHOWS.

      The ruling is sure to be appealed, and the Trump administration says it's business as usual in the meantime. But the decision spells bad news for Republicans, by allowing Democrats to replay a potent health care message that helped them flip 40 House seats: the GOP remains hellbent on gutting Obamacare and rolling back protections for pre-existing conditions.
