MO Senate Democrats Pressure Hawley To Withdraw From Obamacare Lawsuit

Missouri Senate Democrats have filed a resolution calling on Attorney General Hawley to pull out of a federal lawsuit about the Affordable Care Act.

A report from Missourinet say Minority Leader Gina Walsh of Bellefontaine Neighbors says the suit could put 2.5 million Missourians with pre-existing health conditions in jeopardy of losing insurance.

19 other Republican-led states have joined the lawsuit. It contends Congress’s elimination of a tax penalty for those who don’t buy insurance makes the law unconstitutional.

Hawley says preexisting conditions should be covered but says the law is unconstitutional.
