 *** MEDIA ADVISORY FOR WEDNESDAY, MAY 6TH, 9:15 AM ET ***


Rep. Wasserman Schultz, Chair Rizzo, Health Care Advocates To Call On Trump, AG Moody To Drop Lawsuit That Would End Protections for Patients with Pre-Existing Conditions During COVID-19 Pandemic

FLORIDA - Tomorrow at 9:15 a.m., on the day opening briefs will be submitted to the Supreme Court regarding the Trump-Republican lawsuit to eliminate the Affordable Care Act (ACA),  Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo, and health care advocates will hold a virtual news conference to urge Donald Trump and Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody to drop their reckless lawsuit. The health care advocates include Wes Hodge of Orlando, a cancer survivor, and Tracy Corn of Tampa, a mother of two daughters with pre-existing conditions. 

Trump’s lawsuit would strip 2 million Floridians of their health care and end protections for an estimated 3 million Floridians with pre-existing conditions. Despite the importance of affordable health care, especially during a pandemic, Trump and Florida Republicans are still pushing to undermine the Affordable Care Act with no plan for the people who will lose their coverage and protection. 


WHAT: Virtual press conference highlighting Trump, GOP efforts to eliminate the ACA and protections for patients with pre-existing conditions during the coronavirus pandemic. 


WHO:

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, U.S. Representative for FL-23

Terrie Rizzo, Florida Democratic Party Chair 

Wes Hodge, cancer survivor and Chair of Orange County Democrats

Tracy Corn, mother of two daughters with pre-existing conditions 


WHEN: Wednesday, May 6, 9:15 a.m.
