Trump Nominees Chad Readler and Eric Murphy will get Floor Vote in Coming Weeks

Readler Supported Efforts to Allow Insurance Companies to Deny Coverage for People with Pre-Existing Conditions; Murphy has Worked to Restrict Women’s Access to Health Care

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tomorrow, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and health advocates from Protect Our Care will host a news conference call where they will call on members of the Senate to oppose the nominations of Chad Readler and Eric Murphy to serve on the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Both Readler and Murphy have proven too extreme for Ohio, with combined records of working to roll back health care protections and strip Ohioans’ of their rights. Readler has taken a leading role in the Trump Administration’s efforts to undermine the ACA, filing an anti-ACA Justice Department brief in the multi-state lawsuit that recently resulted in one federal court’s ruling that the entire ACA should be struck down. Brown opposed both nominees when they were first announced by President Trump last year and continues to oppose their nominations today.

WHO:  

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
