Mark Kelly Will Put Arizonans’ Health Care First
Phoenix, AZ— Following Mark Kelly’s win in Arizona’s race for U.S. Senate, Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement:
“This race was run and won on health care. Senator-elect Mark Kelly is a health care champion and comes to Washington with a clear mandate to pass a COVID relief package and build on the Affordable Care Act to lower costs, increase coverage and stand up to insurance and drug companies. Arizona rejected the Republican war on health care and voted for moving forward on an aggressive health care agenda in the new Congress.
“Voters rejected Martha McSally because of her disastrous position on health care. From supporting the repeal of the Affordable Care Act to lying about protections for pre-existing conditions, Martha McSally was a reliable vote in favor of Donald Trump’s war on health care. Instead, voters chose Mark Kelly, who made health care a centerpiece of his campaign and will prioritize the health of Arizonans by maintaining protections Americans count on to get health care coverage. Voters in Arizona chose Mark Kelly to reverse the years-long health care sabotage inflicted upon Americans by Donald Trump and make health care more accessible and affordable for everyone.”
