much Senator Schumer every single day over the last three and a half years president Trump has been engaged an intentional attempt to sabotage our health care system right now the administration is setting the court to attempts to get the judicial branch to do with the legislative branch would not and that is repeal the entirety of the Affordable Care Act this isn't a joke this isn't a political stunt this is real life because if the trouble administration is successful this year in this court case overnight we will have a humanitarian catastrophe on our hands in this country 20 million people would lose insurance 12 million of them would be on Medicaid those are the most vulnerable the most disabled of our population and most days Senate Republicans are pretending that they aren't actually members of Congress they pretend as if Donald Trump is kryptonite having robbed their powers to legislate they can legislate they can pass legislation they could use their voices to stand up and say that this administration should withdraw this lawsuit instead they have effectively made themselves co-counsels in this lawsuit by standing here silently on the Senate floor day after day after this killer lawsuit proceeds through the court system my son is really good at telling me that he's getting up in the morning out of bed he tells me that over and over and over again and then he never actually gets out of bed and I tell him that is not good enough to tell me you're getting out of bed you actually have to get out of bed and I think about him when I listen to Republicans tell us over and over again that they want to protect people with pre-existing conditions and then day after day do absolutely nothing about it except to effectively endorse the strategy of this president to take away those very protections first through the legislative process and now through the court system Senate Democrats are going to be standing up week after week to make sure that everyone in this country knows that this president and this caucus the Senate Republican caucus are in league together in this killer lawsuit
