Attila the Hun’s Greatest Weakness: Answering Literally Any Question About Health Care

September 28, 2020

As Loeffler pledges to back anti-health care Supreme Court nominee and stand with Trump “100%,” will the unelected Senator answer whether she supports lawsuit to “terminate” the health care law?

ATLANTA — Unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler has compared herself to the fearsome Attila the Hun for her “100%” support of President Donald Trump —  but apparently she’s too afraid to answer whether she agrees with Trump’s recent call to have the health care law “terminated in the Supreme Court” as he tries to appoint a new anti-health care justice.

Loeffler has so far ducked calls to give a direct answer about whether or not she supports the GOP’s reckless lawsuit to “terminate” the health care law, completely overturning this critical legislation and ending its vital protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions.

Instead, she has pledged to back Trump and Republican leadership “100%,” along with their efforts to force through a new Supreme Court justice weeks before an election who has a long track record as a “vocal opponent” of the health care law.

But even as her opponent Congressman Doug Collins has joined the push for Republicans’ lawsuit, praising it as a way to “overcome” the health care law, Loeffler has remained silent.

What would happen to Georgians if this push to “terminate” the law is successful?

“Senator Kelly Loeffler brags about her ‘100%’ support for Trump in desperate campaign ads but she’s too afraid to answer basic questions about the anti-health care GOP lawsuit that enjoys Trump’s full backing,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “As Loeffler prepares to rush through a lifetime Supreme Court nominee who could be the deciding vote to strike down the health care law, she must finally come clean to Georgians about whether she supports her party’s effort to take away their health care.”
