Senator Perdue voted multiple times to threaten protections for nearly 2 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions and supports the Republican lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act
A clear majority of Georgians support keeping the Affordable Care Act and its protections for people with pre-existing conditions intact
ATLANTA — Today, as the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in the GOP lawsuit backed by Senator David Perdue, Georgians are reminded that the Affordable Care Act and its protections for people with pre-existing conditions are at grave risk because of Perdue’s reckless anti-health care agenda.
Senator Perdue voted multiple times to threaten protections for nearly 2 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions even though a clear majority of Georgians support keeping the Affordable Care Act and its health care protections intact.
Perdue pledged his “strongest support” for Justice Barrett, a longtime vocal opponent of the Affordable Care Act, yet he has made desperate attempts to “obscure [his] position on pre-existing conditions” to Georgia families, despite a PolitiFact fact-check ruling Perdue’s claim to support protections for people with pre-existing conditions as “False.”
Now, a week after being forced into a January runoff and failing to gain support from a majority of Georgians, Senator Perdue has been in hiding after his abysmal reelection performance and abruptly pulling out of the last debate when Ossoff hammered Perdue for his harmful agenda to strip away critical protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions.
“Even after Senator Perdue failed to gain support from a majority of voters, he’s still choosing to prioritize his donors and corporate backers by supporting this dangerous lawsuit,” said Braxton Brewington, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Perdue was forced into a runoff because his agenda to strip away health care protections is unpopular across the Peach State, and Georgians will vote him out to prove it.”
