Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards commented on Attorney General Jeff Landry’s unilateral decision to enter the state of Louisiana into a lawsuit that eliminates health care protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Today, the attorney general appeared on CNN to discuss his effort. During the interview, he made clear that prior to joining the lawsuit, he did not have a plan in place to ensure insurance companies do not deny coverage for the 849,000 people in Louisiana who could lose health care because they have a pre-existing condition.
