There are some political promises that, if fulfilled by President Trump, will destroy his re-election chances. Attempting to take away health care protections from 20+ Americans and eliminating coverage for pre-existing conditions for tens of millions of others will guarantee his defeat on November 3, 2020, Election Day.

COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak World Statistics
The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are surging in the United States, over the past five days, We have gone from 30,000 new cases a day a new record yesterday of 40,401 positive tests confirmed, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University. That’s a new record.
The numbers of deaths based on the last peak in April and the explosion of new cases are on course to rise back over 2,000 a day. We now stand at 127,000 deaths.
Hospitals in Texas, Arizona, and Florida are now at full capacity. There are no beds for new patients. We are on the verge of making our national nightmare much worse. Imagine people unable to get the medical attention they need, forced to die at home. Many because they listened and watched Trump and his Kakistocracy.
With the pandemic back in a full force and the number of fatalities from COVID-19 killing 200,000 to 300,000 by Election Day November 3, 2020, Trump has asked the Supreme Court to invalidate the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Millions of Americans rely on for health-care coverage and protection for pre-existing conditions.
In a late-night filing, Trump Administration lawyers argued that “the entire ACA must fall” because one of its core provisions, the individual mandate, is unconstitutional, which they say makes the rest of the law invalid.
Democrats reacted angrily to the move, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying…
“President Trump and the Republicans’ campaign to rip away the protections and benefits of the Affordable Care Act in the middle of the coronavirus crisis is an act of unfathomable cruelty.”
Oral arguments are scheduled for next term, but it’s not clear if that’ll happen before the election. A decision in the case might not come until 2021. Doing this before the election is not only political suicide for President Trump, but for the entire Republican Party.
