Loeffler and Collins continue backing anti-health care Supreme Court nominee for rushed confirmation as Georgians stand behind health care law
ATLANTA — A new poll today confirmed that not only are Georgia Republicans in trouble up and down the ballot, but that Georgia voters support the landmark health care law and its protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions.
Even as both Senator Kelly Loeffler and Congressman Doug Collins trip over themselves to back President Donald Trump’s anti-health care Supreme Court nominee ahead of arguments in the Trump administration-backed lawsuit to overturn the law, a majority of Georgians agree that they want the health care law to stay in place — including double-digit support from independent voters. And a clear majority of Georgians also say they want to see the Supreme Court vacancy filled by the winner of the upcoming election.
Yet despite Georgians’ support of the health care law, Trump has doubled-down on his calls to have it “terminated in the Supreme Court” as Loeffler promises to back him “100%” and Collins praises this reckless lawsuit as a way to “overcome” the law after failing to gut it in Congress.
“Georgia voters are clear: they want critical health care protections for 1.8 million Georgians to remain in place, not be brushed aside by an anti-health care Supreme Court justice rushed through confirmation less than two months out from Election Day,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Once again, instead of standing with Georgia voters who want to protect their access to care, Senator Kelly Loeffler and Congressman Doug Collins are rushing to score points with the White House as part of their petty political infighting.”
