Loeffler, who’s promised to back Trump and Republicans “100%,” officially votes in favor of allowing the administration to continue backing a lawsuit to overturn the health care law
ATLANTA — Today, after months of dodging, unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler stood with her party to vote to allow the Trump administration to continue supporting the GOP lawsuit to overturn the health care law and threaten protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions in the middle of a global pandemic.
Loeffler had already pledged to stand with her party “100%,” including backing President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett who has a long track record as a “vocal opponent” of the health care law. Loeffler’s opponent, Congressman Doug Collins also has a history of attacks on the health care law, voting multiple times in Congress to gut this critical legislation and praising this lawsuit as a way to “overcome” the law.
What would the result look like for Georgians if this reckless lawsuit succeeds?
“Today, Senator Kelly Loeffler continued to put her party over Georgia by voting to let the Trump Administration continue backing a lawsuit that could threaten health care protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions at a time when they need care most,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “This vote makes it clear that just like her opponent Congressman Doug Collins, Loeffler will always put her party and her political ambitions ahead of Georgians’ access to health care.”
