Washington, DC — On Friday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy reaffirmed that health care repeal would be a top priority for Republicans headed into 2020. Despite McCarthy crediting the GOPs failed repeal efforts for his Party’s devastating 2018 losses less than a year ago, he seems determined to once again run on the same sabotage agenda that cost Republicans their majority. In response to this news, Protect Our Care executive director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement: 

“The Republican plan is, and has always been, repeal and sabotage, no matter the consequences at the ballot box or the American lives hurt along the way. Thankfully for the American public, Kevin McCarthy said the quiet part out loud this weekend and made clear to all that Republicans remain dead-set on repealing health care – raising costs and gutting protections for people with pre-existing conditions.”
