Help Move Georgia Forward
As she stands “100%” in lockstep with Washington Republicans, Loeffler still silent on GOP-backed lawsuit to end health care coverage for millions and critical protections for pre-existing conditions
ATLANTA — “Political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler said she is “100% supportive” of Washington Republican leaders — including their health care policies that would gut protections for the 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions — and is facing scrutiny for the position.
Yesterday, Georgia health care advocates came together to call on Loeffler to denounce the GOP-backed lawsuit that would end health care coverage for millions and critical protections for pre-existing conditions as part of Republicans’ push to gut the health care law.
Nearly all of Loeffler’s fellow Senate Republicans have stood in lockstep to try and rip away federal health care protections that ensure Georgians with pre-existing conditions have access to affordable, quality care, including Loeffler’s fellow Georgia Senator David Perdue who “of course” supports the lawsuit.
Now, with President Donald Trump promising to bring back Republicans’ failed health care agenda after the 2020 elections, it’s time for Loeffler to answer whether she “of course” stands with Perdue and Senate Republicans like she’s “100%” promised to.
“Georgians deserve to know why Kelly Loeffler is pledging to ‘100%’ support her party’s agenda that includes stripping away protections for the 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions and ending health care coverage for millions across the country,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “The GOP’s health care plans would be a disaster for Georgians who never got a say before Kelly Loeffler bought herself a temporary Senate appointment. They deserve to hear her explain why she’s willing to be a rubber stamp for Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans’ reckless health care plans.”
