New Ad from Team Biden-Harris Illustrates Donald Trump’s Promise to “Terminate” Health Care for Millions

Millions of Americans Could Lose Their Health Insurance If Trump is Reelected

Ahead of tomorrow’s anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Team Biden-Harris released “Flatline”, a new digital ad hitting Donald Trump for his repeated promises to repeal the landmark law. The spot underscores the tragic consequences that would result from Trump’s commitment to “terminate” the life saving legislation.

Starting tomorrow on the anniversary of the passage of the ACA, “Flatline” will run on digital platforms including Meta, YouTube, and connected TV in English and Spanish across our battleground states.

As president, Trump was just one vote away from repealing the ACA. Now, he’s doubling down, promising to “terminate” the law. If Trump gets his way, he would:

That’s Trump’s health care plan – taking away coverage, driving up health care costs, and making Americans’ lives worse.

Earlier this morning, President Biden released the following statement in response to Trump’s attacks on the Affordable Care Act:

“The Affordable Care Act is without a doubt, the most consequential piece of health care legislation in decades, providing millions of Americans with the freedom and security to live the life they want without the fear that one accident or illness will bankrupt them and their families.

“When I ran for president in 2020, I promised the American people that I would protect the Affordable Care Act from partisan attacks and build on it. That’s exactly what I’ve done: getting more people affordable health insurance, lowering prescription drug prices, and giving families more breathing room. Now more Americans have affordable health insurance than ever before, premiums are down, and enrollment is at an all-time high. We took on Big Pharma – and won, capping insulin at just $35 per month and out-of-pocket prescription costs at $2,000 per year for seniors.

“We can’t take this progress for granted. Extreme MAGA Republicans have voted over 50 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Just this week, Trump’s allies in the House proposed a budget that would gut this life-saving legislation. Donald Trump was just one vote away from getting it done the last time he was in power. Now, he’s determined to try again, running to ‘terminate’ it – and to cut Medicare and Social Security while he’s at it.

“Trump wants to take us back to a time when health insurance companies could deny coverage to Americans with heart disease or diabetes or asthma. When you couldn’t leave a dead-end job because you couldn’t risk losing your health insurance. When a 22-year-old kid could be kicked off his parents’ plan because he graduated from college. When insurance companies could cut people off halfway through chemo because they’d reached the limit of what they were willing to pay. I won’t let that happen.

“I am fighting to build on our progress, not take us backwards. Let’s lower more prescription drug costs, cap insulin costs for everyone, and expand health care coverage so more people can get the care they deserve. It’s not hyperbole to say that affordable health care for millions of people is on the line in November. I am more determined than ever to beat back MAGA Republican attacks and make health care a right and not a privilege in America. I know that we will.”
