STEFANIK TAKES FIGHT TO END PROTECTIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS TO THE SUPREME COURT


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: CONTACT: press@tedracobb.com

Canton—Less than 24 hours after the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elise Stefanik embraced President Trump and Sen. Mitch McConnell’s plan to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat ahead of the November election. Elise Stefanik and Republicans in Congress have been trying for a decade to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and eliminate protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Now, they are taking that fight to the Supreme Court.

“The day Elise Stefanik voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act and throw 64,000 Northern New Yorkers off their healthcare, is the day I decided to run,” said Cobb. “Elise Stefanik and Donald Trump will stop at nothing to destroy protections for millions of Americans who live with pre-existing health conditions. We face the biggest healthcare crisis of our lifetimes. Instead of working toward a realistic and consistent Federal response that would end this pandemic, Elise Stefanik is desperately trying to please Donald Trump.”

In the midst of a global pandemic, Elise Stefanik voted to further a taxpayer-funded lawsuit that, if successful, would throw 64,000 of her own constituents off their healthcare. During her time in Congress, she has voted five times to repeal the Affordable Care Act and to leave Northern New Yorkers with pre-existing conditions without the coverage they need. It should come as no surprise that Stefanik would jump at the chance to fill the Supreme Court seat with anyone who will make her healthcare nightmare a reality.

“The will of the American people will be known in 44 days,” said Cobb. “The leaders we elect this year should make this critical choice. Any nominee for the Supreme Court should be thoroughly and publicly vetted for the job. Nominees for consequential lifetime appointments shouldn’t be forced through an irresponsible expedited process by politicians who are terrified of losing this November.”
