As liberal groups launch an effort to battle against Republican plans to repeal Obamacare, a leader of a progressive organization said that fight will be part of a larger strategy that will argue President-elect Donald Trump's policies risk selling out the voters who backed him.
"There will be a common critique that Trump is betraying his voters by putting big corporations against the needs of everyday working families, and that will extend to Obamacare," said Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.
"It spans across issues," said Green.
Green also said that while Republicans were able to "rhetorically bash Obamacare" in the past eight years, "this will not be politically easy for them" to repeal the health-care reform law.
"A lot of Republicans will get cold feet" when it comes time to vote on the law's demise, predicted Green. "Millions of people will lose their health care."
On Friday, a new group calling itself The Protect Our Care Coalition called on Trump and Congress "to stop their reckless sprint to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and show how they will provide more affordable and meaningful care, coverage and consumer protections than the law currently provides."
The coalition of health-care and social and economic justice organizations also said that it will pool the resources of its member groups "and work together to ensure people in America understand the damage of repealing the ACA."
"Congress should not take away the promise of future coverage without simultaneously voting on a plan that guarantees people will have health and financial security," the coalition said.
The campaign manager for the coalition is Leslie Dach, a former top lobbyist for Wal-Mart who also worked in the administration of President Barack Obama to promote the ACA. Coaliton members include the leading Obamacare advocacy group Families USA, the large Service Employees International Union, the NAACP, the National Urban League and the National Council of La Raza.
The coalition's creation comes as a number of health-care experts have raised warnings that repealing Obamacare, as both Trump and Republican congressional leaders intend to do, without having a plan in hand to immediately replace the health-care law could lead to sharp increases in the numbers of Americans without health insurance.
Some Republicans have called for delaying the effects of a repeal for up to three years until a replacement plan can be crafted and agreed upon.
But the American Academy of Actuaries, in a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., this week, said delaying a replacement plan while at the same time repealing Obamacare could wreak havoc in the nation's individual insurance plan market.
Earlier this week, the Urban Institute, in a new study, said that repealing the ACA without any replacement plan could double the uninsured rate by 2019, leading to a higher rate of uninsurance than was seen before passage of Obamacare into law.
"'Repeal and delay' is not better than repeal," The Protect Our Care Coalition said. "American families deserve to know what will happen to them before Congress acts."
"In these uncertain times, working people in America value the safety and security of health coverage more than ever," the coalition said.
"Before any repeal vote, they deserve to know what is in a replacement plan and see proof that it will provide better, more affordable care, coverage and consumer protections than the ACA."
