Three years ago, House Republicans unveiled Collins-supported plan to gut the health care law and threaten protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions
ATLANTA — This week marks three years since House Republicans unveiled their toxic plan to gut the landmark health care law and threaten coverage protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions — a plan strongly supported by top Trump ally Congressman Doug Collins.
What would this plan have meant for Georgians?
Collins ultimately voted for this reckless legislation, alongside Senator David Perdue who repeatedly voted for the Senate’s own disastrous versions of this plan. And Collins’ top Republican competitor, Senator Kelly Loeffler, has already pledged to back Senate Republicans’ agenda “100%” — including efforts to continue chipping away at Georgians’ health care coverage after the 2020 election.
Now, even in the middle of a public health crisis, Republicans are still trying to gut the health care law through a lawsuit currently pending before the Supreme Court. And despite millions of Americans uninsured, Republicans refuse to reopen health care exchanges even as Americans need access to care now more than ever.
