Ted Cruz Blocks Pre-existing Conditions Bill After Promising to Always Protect Them

  • Ted Cruz just voted to block Tillis’s amendment aimed at restoring some of the ACA’s protections on pre-existing conditions if the ACA is overturned by SCOTUS as a Trump-backed suit aims to do after the election.
  • “Every Republican agrees we’re going to protect pre-existing conditions,” said Cruz. “100 out of 100 senators agree we’re going to protect pre-existing conditions regardless of what happens with Obamacare.”
  • On Monday, Ted Cruz told CNBC that there was no question the Republican Party was going to take care of people with pre-existing health conditions if the Supreme Court invalidates the Affordable Care Act, then 2 days later blocks the Bill that would protect them.
