RALEIGH, NC – This afternoon, Senator Tillis voted to pave the way for the administration to continue its effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act that currently provides insurance to 20 million Americans and protects 1.7 million North Carolinians with pre-existing conditions. While other vulnerable Republicans up for reelection voted to block the Justice Department from supporting the lawsuit to repeal the ACA, Tillis voted against it.
This vote follows Tillis’ partisan effort to protect himself after repeated attempts to repeal protections for people with pre-existing conditions. But experts have said that Tillis’ sham health care bill “contains huge loopholes that undermine that promise” and just provides insurers “another way of excluding coverage of preexisting conditions.”
Today, Senator Tillis set the record straight once and for all: He’s willing to destroy health care, even during a pandemic.
From Raleigh to Washington, North Carolinians have seen Tillis’ consistent attacks on health care for years.
“Today Senator Tillis proved once again what we’ve known all along — when it comes to standing up for North Carolinians’ health care, he’ll cave every time,” said Kate Frauenfelder, a spokeswoman for Cal Cunningham’s campaign. “Especially during this pandemic, North Carolinians cannot afford a Senator that is more interested in his own political ambitions than protecting the millions in our state living with pre-existing conditions.”
