LANCASTER, PA — (06-25-20) — Former vice president and Democratic candidate Joe Biden, spoke on the Affordable Care Act. Biden slammed the Trump administration’s efforts to destroy the Affordable Care Act on Thursday as the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic overwhelms states that rushed to reopen their economies.

In swing state Pennsylvania, the Democratic presidential nominee said dismantling the landmark Obama administration health care law would further burden Americans recovering from Covid-19.

Joe Biden’s remarks come as the Trump administration faces down a deadline to file a legal brief in support of a lawsuit challenging Obamacare’s constitutionality.

“They would live their lives caught in a vise between Donald Trump’s twin legacies: his failure to protect the American people from the coronavirus, and his heartless crusade to take health-care protections away from American families,” said Biden of Covid-19 patients who could lose coverage if Obamacare is declared unconstitutional and complications from the pandemic get classified as a pre-existing condition.

“Mr. President, drop the lawsuit. Stop trying to get rid of the Affordable Care Act,” he added. He later said that, “If Donald Trump refuses to end his senseless crusade against health coverage, I look forward to ending it for him.”
