About: Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)
President Trump held a Rally in Huntington, W.Va. for Patrick Morrisey, the Republican challenger to Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin. During his speech, Trump told the ralliers that the Republicans would "Always protect pre-existing conditions." At that time, Republican candidates who voted for or signed legislative proposals to replace the Affordable Care Act wouldn't be able to say that they had protecting patients with pre-existing conditions in mind, since such proposals would not offer the same degree of protection.
