Julian Castro: This Administration Has Sabotaged Health Care for Millions of Americans

‘This administration is going completely against the will of the people’


CASTRO: “I would say that I would add in no health care. The Republican Party is going to be known as the party of taking health care away from millions of Americans. This is stunning, Erin. That this administration is going completely against the will of the people. Going against the will of Congress. And trying to pull the rug out from under millions and millions of American families. People who have preexisting conditions, who are only able to get health insurance, able to afford health insurance because the affordable care act says you cannot consider preexisting conditions to those health insurers. So basically, this administration and the Republican Party wants to go back to the bad old days where people couldn’t get health insurance if they had a preexisting condition, where folks were not able to stay on their parents’ plan until the age of 26. They got thrown off a lot earlier. And generally, where millions and millions of people less had health insurance. I mean, the affordable care act at one time before this administration started to sabotage it, 20 million more people were able to get affordable health care coverage. That had been amazing. And it is something else to watch a president and a party that get their kicks out of hurting people, whether it’s with health care or those children that they’re separating from their families at the border. It is just amazing to watch.”
