TODAY: SCOTUS Begins Oral Arguments in Anti-Health Care Lawsuit Backed by Loeffler

November 10, 2020

Loeffler’s party rushes ahead with lawsuit to completely overturn the health care law without a plan to protect 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions

ATLANTA — Today, the Supreme Court is set to begin oral arguments on the GOP’s reckless lawsuit to overturn the entire health care law and end its critical protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions — all while unelected “political mega-donor” Senator Kelly Loeffler continues to stand behind her party “100%.”

Instead of standing up for Georgians’ health care protections in the middle of a pandemic, Loeffler has spent this crisis trying to cover up for her stock trading scandal while rushing to back her party’s disastrous health care agenda.

Loeffler famously bragged about “leading the charge” to confirm a “vocal opponent” of the health care law to the Supreme Court after voting to let the Trump administration continue backing this reckless lawsuit in court. And while she claims the health care law “failed,” Loeffler is also doubling-down on support for a White House that hopes the Supreme Court “ends” the law and has publicly given up on controlling the pandemic.

Here’s a reminder of what Georgians could be facing if this anti-health care lawsuit succeeds:

“At a time when Georgians are relying on their access to care more than ever, Republicans are arguing in court to rip away health care protections — and Senator Kelly Loeffler is proudly standing behind them,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Instead of doing her job working to pass adequate coronavirus relief, Loeffler is once again choosing her party’s reckless health care agenda over Georgia families.”
