    “Complications from Covid-19, like lung scarring and heart damage could become the next flood of pre-existing conditions used as an excuse to deny coverage to millions of people.”  Biden speaks of possible consequences if Trump succeeds in replacing the Affordable Care Act. Biden hewed to the growing unified Democratic message in the fight against Trump’s decision to nominate Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, focusing on what he says is the danger to Americans’ health care. “The clear focus is this is about your health care. This is about whether or not the ACA will exist,” he said, referring to the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare. “This is about whether or not pre-existing conditions will continue to be covered. This is about whether or not a woman can be charged more for the procedures as a man. This is about peoples’ health care in the middle of a pandemic,” he said. Biden mentioned Barrett only once in his speech, but only to note that she criticized Chief Justice John Roberts’ opinion to uphold Obamacare. Barrett, a professor at Notre Dame Law School, is now a judge on the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. She clerked for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and vowed to follow his textualist approach to deciding cases. If confirmed, she could move the court to the right for decades. Polls show a majority of voters believe the next president should fill Ginsburg’s seat, and Democrats are hoping voters will rebel against Republicans for expediting the process. — Tyler Pager
