AG Rutledge admits she wants to kill the entire Affordable Care Act

By Max Brantley


Attorney General Leslie Rutledge took a couple of days to fess up and explain her key role in the effort by Republican-led states to strike down the entire Affordable Care Act.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this week upheld a ruling that the mandate to have insurance was unconstitutional, but delayed a finding on whether everything else in the Affordable Care Act must also fall. The 2-1 court majority seems to want to delay the ultimate demise of Obamacare until after Trump’s re-election bid. Rutledge was one of the attorneys general making the case to end Obamacare.

Rutledge’s news release lauds the decision, but buries the admission that she supports a finding that would make all of Obamacare unconstitutional.

What does Rutledge want? Medicaid expansion that has provided health security for 300,000? Dead. Coverage for pre-existing conditions? Dead. Extended coverage for older children? Dead. All the pro-health provisions such as coverage for birth control and preventive health care, limits on insurance company profiteering? Dead.

to people in need and basic democracy.
