On anniversary of GOP’s last attempt to repeal the health care law in Congress, voters deserve to know whether Loeffler’s “100%” support for her party extends to its toxic lawsuit
ATLANTA — It’s been 33 days since Republicans filed opening briefs in their reckless lawsuit to completely overturn the health care law and end its critical protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions — but unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler still won’t say where she stands on this lawsuit despite pledging to support Trump and Republican leadership “100%.”
Loeffler may not have been in office the last time that Republicans tried to force through a repeal of the health care law — she’d been busy writing them campaign checks though — but since then, her party has continued to push forward with their reckless crusade to end the law. Her opponent, top Trump ally Congressman Doug Collins, has already repeatedly voted to gut the health care law in Congress and pointed to the GOP-backed lawsuit as another effort to “overcome” the law.
But even as 178,000 Georgians have already lost insurance coverage during the coronavirus crisis, Loeffler still won’t clearly answer where she stands on her party’s toxic lawsuit.
“Georgia voters deserve an answer: Does Senator Kelly Loeffler stand with her party ‘100%’ — including this reckless lawsuit to gut protections for Georgians with pre-existing conditions?” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Instead of trying to protect health care coverage in a pandemic, Loeffler’s party has been fighting hard to take it away. It’s time for her to explain where she stands on her party’s disastrous anti-health care crusade.”
