WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement in response to the Trump Administration urging a federal court to throw out protections for people with pre-existing conditions, supporting a lawsuit filed by 20 states, including the State of Wisconsin.

“I was branded as a child with the words, ‘pre-existing condition,’ so I have worked to make sure that no family should have to choose between helping their child get better or going bankrupt. Congressional Republicans have tried to repeal health care coverage for Wisconsin families and the Trump Administration has sabotaged people’s health care by raising costs. Now, Attorney General Sessions has gone to court in support of President Trump and Wisconsin’s Governor and Attorney General to take away guaranteed protections and to raise costs for Americans with pre-existing conditions. The people of Wisconsin did not send me to Washington to take people’s health care away and I will continue my fight against these relentless efforts to make things worse for Wisconsin families.”
