Digital Ad Campaign Targets Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO), Joni Ernst (R-IA) and Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Reminds Voters What’s at Stake in the Upcoming Election

Washington, DC — Today, Protect Our Care released new digital ads highlighting the complicity of Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO), Joni Ernst (R-IA) and Thom Tillis (R-NC) in Donald Trump’s lawsuit to eliminate the Affordable Care Act in the middle of a pandemic by jamming an anti-ACA justice on the court before Election Day. On November 10, 2020 — one week after the election — the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in California v. Texas, a case that could rip away protections for 135 million people  with pre-existing conditions and take away health insurance from over 23 million Americans. The ads call on these senators to let the next president pick the next Supreme Court justice.

The new ads will begin as a paid digital campaign in Colorado, Iowa and North Carolina. Protect Our Care plans to add states to the campaign and expand to television at a later date.

“One week after Election Day, Donald Trump will ask the Supreme Court to eliminate the entire Affordable Care Act and Senate Republicans like Cory Gardner, Joni Ernst and Thom Tillis are hellbent on helping him by rushing the confirmation of an anti-health care justice,” said Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach. “At a time when millions go to bed worrying if they or a loved one will get sick, are anxious about sending their children to school, and are wondering how they’ll make ends meet, this reckless agenda is unconscionable. Americans overwhelmingly oppose Senate Republicans’ push to rip health care from 23 million Americans and end protections for 135 million people with pre-existing conditions in the middle of a pandemic. Donald Trump and his Republican allies have been trying to destroy our health care for years now and with the national spotlight fully on the Supreme Court, they can’t hide behind their lies any more.” 

Script for Your Health Care Is On The Line

The next Supreme Court justice will decide whether 135 million Americans lose protections for pre-existing conditions and over 20 million people lose their health care. 

The winner of the presidential election should pick the next justice — but Cory Gardner disagrees.

Cory Gardner wants to rush a justice onto the court who will repeal our health care.

Call Senator Cory Gardner and tell him that the next president should pick the next Supreme Court justice. 

Your health care is on the line.
