AFSCME Will Not Stop Fighting Back Against Attacks on Health Care

WASHINGTON — 

Today, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued its decision in Texas v. Azar. In response, AFSCME President Lee Saunders released the following statement:

“President Trump and his political allies will continue their efforts to take away health care from millions of people. We cannot afford to revert to past injustices of lifetime caps and discrimination that especially harm women, older Americans and people with preexisting conditions. Health care is a right, not a privilege, and AFSCME will not stop fighting for increased access and quality health care for all Americans.”
