Atlanta — As open enrollment under the health care law kicks off tomorrow, Senator David Perdue remains more determined than ever to strip protections for pre-existing conditions and increase the cost of health care from millions of Americans.
Just this week, Perdue continued his enthusiastic support of Republicans’ reckless health care agenda by voting to uphold new rules undermining health care protections for millions, that could let big insurance companies flood states like Georgia with junk health care plans offering little coverage and without protections for those with pre-existing conditions.
Perdue’s dangerous plan for Georgians’ health care goes even farther:
Even after Perdue’s plans failed to pass again and again in Congress, he’s still not given up trying to take away health care for millions of Americans. Perdue is now counting on a dangerous federal lawsuit to completely dismantle the health care law, saying that he “of course” supports this reckless litigation. That lawsuit would rip health care away from millions and throw the entire system into chaos — which is why other Senate Republicans refuse to support it.
“With millions of Americans getting ready to enroll in health insurance — including those with pre-existing conditions — Perdue is still fighting hard to gut protections that let millions receive care in Georgia and across the country,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Once again, Perdue will always put Georgians last if he can put his special interest backers first.”
