New Republican Lie: Coney Barrett Won't Overturn ACA! Perish The Thought!

Yeah they tried the "we love pre-existing conditions" lie in 2018, too. But now it's going to the Supreme Court, and the GOP is pretending THEIR case against Obamacare isn't theirs and isn't a case. Wow.

I can't say it better than Bobby Lewis: "The news channel that's tried to get the Supreme Court to destroy Obamacare since 2010, and which supports a president who asked the Supreme Court to destroy Obamacare four months ago, now swears that the Supreme Court is not going to destroy Obamacare."
