ONE MONTH OUT: Will Loeffler Stand Behind GOP’s Reckless Anti-Health Care Lawsuit?

October 12, 2020

Oral arguments in GOP’s lawsuit to overturn the entire health care law begin in one month, and both Loeffler and Collins continue to stand “100%” behind their party’s reckless agenda

ATLANTA — One month from today, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the GOP’s lawsuit to overturn the health care law and threaten protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions in a pandemic. So today, we’re asking Senator Kelly Loeffler, will she continue standing with her party “100%” including this reckless lawsuit?

In addition to her “100%” pledge of support for President Donald Trump and Republican leadership, Loeffler has already appointed herself to be “leading the charge” to confirm Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, who has a long track record as a “vocal opponent” of the health care law. And Loeffler recently voted to allow the Trump administration to continue supporting this anti-health care lawsuit even in the midst of a global pandemic and recession.

Her opponent, Congressman Doug Collins, likewise has a long track record of trying to end critical protections for Georgia families. He’s voted multiple times in Congress to gut this critical legislation and has praised this lawsuit as a way to “overcome” the law.

What would the result look like for Georgians if this reckless lawsuit succeeds?

“Now more than ever, Georgia families are counting on the health care law’s critical protections for their coverage. But Senator Kelly Loeffler and Congressman Doug Collins are still refusing to back down from their party’s dangerous crusade to rip away these vital protections in the middle of a pandemic,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions stand to lose protections for their health care coverage because Loeffler and Collins won’t stand up to their special interest backers and their party’s DC leadership.”
