US Democrats Rally Around Health Care
They’re preparing for a healthy debate. Following the Trump administration’s call this week for a federal court to cancel the Obama-era Affordable Care Act, Democrats are hunkering down for a fierce political fight. While the public’s been distracted by special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “we have been focused on health care.” They started by unveiling a bill yesterday to lower insurance premiums and boost protections for pre-existing conditions.
Is this a winning strategy for Democrats? With 40 percent of their voters saying health care is their top concern, it could be a defining issue in the 2020 election.
