SUMMARY: As reported in the Charlotte Observer, Democrats in North Carolina have continued to put pressure on U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis over his positions on health care. The nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation states that as many 52 million Americans have pre-existing conditions that were not covered before the Affordable Care Act, including 1.6 million North Carolinians. 

Tillis has been unwilling to comment on a Republican-led lawsuit that would overturn the Affordable Care Act and, without replacement legislation, which would threaten coverage for the estimated 1.6 million residents of our state with pre-existing conditions. This will continue to be a major issue throughout 2020.
