AFSCME’s Saunders: Efforts to dismantle the ACA are ‘cruel, unconscionable’

AFSCME President Lee Saunders issued the following statement responding to the Trump administration’s latest attempt to use the U.S. Supreme Court to dismantle the Affordable Care Act:

“There they go again. To take away health coverage from 23 million Americans and gut protections for people with preexisting conditions is reckless at any time. To do so during a global pandemic – in the middle of the worst public health crisis in a century – is a new, cruel, unconscionable and immoral low for this administration.”
