Chuck Schumer on "Awful" Obamacare Ruling: "We're Going To Fight This Tooth And Nail"


Sen. Chuck Schumer talks about a federal judge ruling striking down the Affordable Care Act by calling the whole of Obamacare unconstitutional with NBC's Chuck Todd on 'Meet the Press.'

"This is an awful ruling," Schumer said. "Of course it undoes pre-existing conditions, jeopardizes the tens of millions who are getting good health care on the exchanges, but it goes way beyond that. It would knock out funding for treatment of opioids. It would raise drug prices. It would close the donut hole so seniors would pay more for drug prices. It would eliminate a lot of maternal care, all kinds of women's health."

"It is an awful, awful ruling and we are going to fight this tooth and nail."
