Loeffler has pledged to stand with Republican leadership “100%” — including forcing through a Supreme Court nominee close to an election that creates a “nightmare scenario” for the health care law and its critical protections
ATLANTA — With unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler calling for the Senate to rush through a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court that would put the health care law “in much greater jeopardy,” it’s time for Loeffler to clearly state her position on Republicans’ reckless lawsuit to completely overturn the health care law and end its critical protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions.
Loeffler has already pledged to back President Donald Trump and Republican leadership “100%,” and their latest efforts to force through a new Supreme Court justice less than two months before an election create a “nightmare scenario” for the health care law in the middle of a global pandemic.
But while Loeffler and her opponent Congressman Doug Collins (who views the lawsuit as a way to “overcome” the health care law) are rushing to confirm a justice so close to an election, Loeffler still won’t say if she supports the GOP-backed lawsuit which could leave the health care law “doomed” as millions of Americans face losing their jobs and their health coverage.
“By trying to push through a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court less than two months out from Election Day, Senator Kelly Loeffler is putting health care protections for millions of Americans on the line,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “After trying to dodge the issue for months, it’s time for Loeffler to clearly admit to her support for the GOP’s reckless anti-health care lawsuit which could leave the health care law ‘doomed’ if she and Mitch McConnell get their way.”
