Right-Wing Groups’ Big New Idea on Health Repeal: Let’s Keep Digging

By May 23, 2018No Comments

After four right-wing groups urged Congressional Republicans to revive repeal and expand previous bills’ attacks on health care, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach released the following statement:

“For almost a decade, Republicans have been listening to right-wing groups funneling hundreds of millions of dollars into the relentless campaign to repeal health care. Now, these groups are counting on Congressional Republicans to ignore the will of the American people and amp up attacks on Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act. This time, they want an even more destructive bill – one that would slash Medicaid, repeal expansion, and decimate the insurance markets, all while giving insurance and pharmaceutical companies even bigger tax breaks. This would make health coverage far more expensive, kick millions off care, not to mention it would be political suicide for Republicans. It’s time for Jim DeMint and his cronies to get another hobby and give up their obsession with taking away our care.”
