Loeffler continues to dodge questions about her party’s non-existent plan to protect Georgians with pre-existing conditions as GOP-backed lawsuit to overturn health care law set to come before Supreme Court
ATLANTA — After yesterday voting to confirm a “vocal opponent” of the health care law to the Supreme Court, today unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler is continuing her (de)tour across Georgia two weeks out from oral arguments in the GOP’s lawsuit to overturn the entire health care law and its critical protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions.
Loeffler has continued to dodge questions about how her party would protect those with pre-existing conditions if their lawsuit is successful — a lawsuit she recently voted to let the Trump administration continue backing in court. Instead, Loeffler has claimed the health care law “failed” while doubling-down on her pledges of support for a White House that hopes the Supreme Court “ends” the health care law and has publicly given up on controlling the pandemic.
Now, with Congress adjourned as Senate Republicans continue stalling needed coronavirus relief, Loeffler is still refusing to give Georgians a straight answer about her party’s attacks on their health care.
“1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions deserve to know what Senator Kelly Loeffler’s plan is to protect their health care in the middle of a pandemic if her party’s reckless lawsuit succeeds,” Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “But instead of answering Georgians’ questions, Loeffler is desperately campaigning for her unelected position as her party continues to stall needed coronavirus relief back in Washington.”
