Tillis Fully Embraced GOP Lawsuit to End Protections for People with Pre-Existing Conditions

Senator Tillis fully embraced the Trump administration’s lawsuit to dismantle the health care law that protects the 1.7 million North Carolinians living with pre-existing conditions, answering a reporter’s question about the lawsuit by saying: 

“I support anything that ultimately takes [the ACA] off the table.”

Reporter: Do you support the lawsuit? 

Tillis: “I haven’t looked at the specifics of the lawsuit so it would be difficult for me to comment. What I should say though is I support anything that ultimately takes a failed health care plan – Obamacare – off the table so that we can start talking about a sustainable one.”

Tillis’ support for the GOP’s reckless lawsuit is part of a disastrous record on health care. Tillis has voted to partially or fully repeal the Affordable Care Act 15 times, even calling one of those votes “courageous,” and said he would vote to repeal the ACA “every time it comes to the floor.”
