RALEIGH, NC – Late Thursday night, the Trump administration filed a brief calling for the Supreme Court to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, including “a section pointedly arguing that the Affordable Care Act’s pre-existing condition rules must be overturned as well.” Not only has Thom Tillis done nothing to stop the lawsuit in the middle of a global pandemic that has impacted the United States more than any other country, he’s actually voted to take away health protections for the 1.7 million North Carolinians living with pre-existing conditions.
Tillis has claimed “for the life of me I can’t understand why anyone would be opposed” to protections for pre-existing conditions. Neither can we. That’s why Tillis’ repeated votes to repeal them are so outrageous:
From Raleigh to Washington, Thom Tillis has attacked health care, blocking Medicaid expansion as Speaker of the North Carolina House, and now doing nothing to stop this critical health care bill from being wiped from the books.
This week Cal Cunningham renewed his calls to protect the Affordable Care Act, defend protections for those living with pre-existing conditions, and expand Medicaid in North Carolina as the coronavirus pandemic exacerbates existing health disparities.
“Thom Tillis has repeatedly worked to strip health care protections from the 1.7 million North Carolinians with pre-existing conditions, and during a pandemic, that’s not just bad for public health, it is downright cruel,” said Kate Frauenfelder, spokeswoman for Cal Cunningham’s campaign. “The contrast couldn’t be clearer — Tillis has made a name for himself trying to take care away, while Cal Cunningham will work to protect it in the Senate.”
