As Health Care Open Enrollment Closes, Perdue Keeps Fighting to Increase Costs, Gut Protections

December 13, 2019

Perdue continues his crusade to end federal health care protections ahead of Sunday’s deadline for open enrollment

Atlanta — With open enrollment under the health care law closing this Sunday, Senator David Perdue still remains determined to strip protections for pre-existing conditions and increase the cost of health care from millions of Americans.

While Georgians are enrolling in health care plans, Perdue is fighting hard for Republicans’ reckless health care agenda, recently voting to uphold new rules undermining health care protections for millions that could let big insurance companies flood states like Georgia with junk health care plans without protections for those with pre-existing conditions.

But Perdue’s dangerous plan for Georgians’ health care goes even farther:

Perdue’s plans may have failed to pass again and again in Congress, but he’s still not given up trying to take away health care for millions of Americans. Now, Perdue is “of course” supporting a dangerous federal lawsuit to completely dismantle the health care law, even as other Senate Republicans refuse to support such reckless litigation. That lawsuit would throw the entire system into chaos by ripping health care away from millions — and would end critical protections for millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions.

“While millions are eager to enroll in health care plans, Senator David Perdue is focused on trying to gut health care protections for pre-existing conditions and rip away coverage,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Instead of putting Georgians and their health care first, Senator Perdue once again is siding with his special interest backers over what’s best for our state.”
