Not just harmful, wildly unpopular too.

Health Care
This should come as a surprise to exactly no one, but the Trump Administration’s refusal to defend the Affordable Care Act in court and put coverage at risk for 133 million Americans is wildly unpopular with the American people. A new poll shows 66% of Americans oppose the move. Key points:
“By a 2-to-1 margin, U.S. voters disapprove of the U.S. Justice Department’s decision to support a lawsuit that would eliminate popular protections for patients with preexisting conditions under the Affordable Care Act, a new poll shows.”

“The poll, which is the latest to show growing support for the ACA, and its consumer protections in particular, shows 66% of voters disapprove of the Trump Justice Department’s move and nearly half, or 47% of all voters ‘strongly disapprove’ of the lawsuit gutting the ACA's consumer protections.”

“‘Our new polling shows that protections for pre-existing conditions remain a sacred cow for voters, who strongly disapprove of the recent Trump Administration decision to attack this popular provision of the health care law,’ Hart Research President Geoff Garin said. ‘Voters respond with notable intensity to this decision, and almost half believe it could directly impact their own households.’”
