With the GOP lawsuit to overturn the health care law pending before the Supreme Court, Loeffler is hitting the campaign trail with anti-health care activists days before Election Day
ATLANTA — Today, after leaving Washington without passing desperately needed coronavirus relief, unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler is back on the campaign trail with a crowd of anti-health care activists less than two weeks out from oral arguments in a Republican-backed lawsuit to completely overturn the health care law.
Today’s surrogates on Loeffler’s campaign bus tour have slammed the law that protects coverage for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions as “utterly ineffective” and pushed for the total “repeal” of this landmark legislation. Loeffler is also joined by a political operative representing an organization that has repeatedly praised legislation to gut the health care law’s protections in Congress.
But Loeffler campaigning with radical anti-health care activists should come as no surprise. Loeffler has previously claimed the health care law “failed” after voting to let the Trump administration continue backing this reckless lawsuit to completely wipe out the law in court.
Now, after “leading the charge” to put a “vocal opponent” of the health care law on the Supreme Court, Loeffler is spending the final days of October putting her anti-health care backers on full display as Georgians continue to wait on stalled coronavirus relief.
“Rather than working to secure needed coronavirus relief, Senator Kelly Loeffler is once again putting her party’s reckless priorities ahead of what’s best for Georgians,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “At a time when Georgia families are more concerned about access to health care than ever, Senator Kelly Loeffler is making her closing argument clear: a vote for her is a vote for her party’s radical anti-health care agenda in Congress.”
