Governors Condemn Trump Stance on Insurance Benefits for Pre-Existing Conditions

A Trump administration move that could reduce access to health insurance benefits for people with pre-existing conditions is being slammed by a bipartisan group of governors.

Recently, the Justice Department said it will no longer defend the section of the Affordable Care Act related to pre-existing conditions.

On Tuesday, the governors of Alaska, Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Nevada, North Carolina, Montana, Washington and Maryland issued a joint statement condemning the Trump administration's decision, the Associated Press reported.

They said it would harm families, create uncertainty in insurance markets and is contrary to American values.
