Tuesday night at The Atlantic Festival, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Trump of rushing to fill the vacancy in the SCOTUS left by the passing of Justice Ginsburg to repeal Obamacare.
On November 10th the Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case challenging the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.
“Why the president is in such a rush is because he’s in a hurry to overturn the Affordable Care Act. And he wants to do that,” Pelosi said.
“The oral arguments start Nov. 10, a week after the election, and he wants to get a justice in there in time for that so they can hear the arguments and vote on it,” she added.
“People have to know what this means to them,” the California Democrat said. “Yeah, they know that the Republicans are hypocritical, they said one thing and another, who cares? What they care about is what it means to them. And what it means to 150 million families in America is that no longer will they have the protection of the Affordable Care Act when it comes to a pre-existing medical condition.”
