Collins Opposes Effort to Protect Americans’ Coverage, Doubles Down on GOP’s Reckless Anti-Health Care Agenda

June 30, 2020

Collins continues voting against protecting Americans’ health care as the GOP pushes ahead with lawsuit that threatens protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions

ATLANTA — Yesterday, Congressman Doug Collins voted against protecting and expanding access to health care for millions of Americans as the “GOP plows ahead” with a reckless lawsuit to completely overturn the health care law and end its critical protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions.

Collins’ vote against expanding health care coverage to an estimated 4 million Americans and bringing down health care costs for millions more comes as no surprise. In Congress, he’s repeatedly voted to undermine the health care law and gut critical protections for Georgia families — even as he claims otherwise.

Collins joins fellow GOP Senate candidates David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in pushing to rip away Georgians’ health care. Perdue has said he “of course” supports the GOP’s reckless lawsuit to overturn the health care law — and has the Senate voting record to prove it. Loeffler, meanwhile, has pledged to stand behind Republican leadership “100%” in a desperate attempt to save her campaign, even if it means taking away health coverage from millions.

“Even in the middle of a global pandemic, Congressman Doug Collins is still fighting against efforts to protect and expand Americans’ access to health care,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “His vote yesterday was yet another example of how Collins puts Washington politics and his special interest allies ahead of everyday Georgia families.”
