DES MOINES — Today, Donald Trump and Washington Republicans filed briefs at the Supreme Court to repeal the Affordable Care Act and end pre-existing condition health protections for more than 130 million Americans, including 1.3 million Iowans. David Young voted for the Trump Tax bill that laid the groundwork for this anti-health care lawsuit. IDP communications director Mandy McClure released the following statement:

“Voters already rejected David Young’s partisan health care agenda. As if undoing the Affordable Care Act during a global pandemic is bad enough, Republicans don’t have an alternative health care system if their reckless suit is successful. David Young is running for his old seat to continue this crusade to dismantle the national healthcare system and leave millions of Americans without accessible health care. Rep. Axne is a proven leader for the third district and voters already know her steadfast commitment to making health care more accessible and affordable for their families.”
