One day since oral arguments began in GOP lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act, Loeffler campaigns with senator who bragged about having “killed” the law and worked to raise premiums
ATLANTA — Today, unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler is set to campaign in a county she lost by double digits with career politician Senator Marco Rubio, who once tried to brag that he “killed” the health care law that protects coverage for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions.
Loeffler’s campaign stop with yet another anti-health care politician should come as no surprise. She infamously appeared with other extreme groups hostile to the health care law while bragging about “leading the charge” to put a “vocal opponent” of the law on the Supreme Court. Loeffler has also claimed the health care law “failed” after voting to let the Trump administration continue backing a reckless lawsuit to completely wipe out the law in court.
For his part, Rubio’s anti-health care crusade includes his efforts to “undermine” the law by defunding a critical program that led to rising premiums for millions of Americans. Rubio has also voted five times in the Senate to gut the health care law and its critical protections.
“Instead of listening to Georgians anxious about their access to health care in a pandemic, Senator Kelly Loeffler is campaigning with another DC politician with a record of attacking the health care law and working to raise premiums,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “The fact that Senator Loeffler would campaign with a politician like Senator Marco Rubio who’s led a crusade against health care protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions shows once again just how out of touch she is with Georgia voters.”
