McSally Confirms Yet Another Unqualified Anti-Health Care Judge

Martha McSally Votes To Confirm Yet Another Unqualified Anti-Health Care Judge


Rated “Not Qualified” by the American Bar Association, Sarah Pitlyk has attacked pre-existing condition coverage protections and argued against common fertility treatments for having “grave effects on society”

PHOENIX — Martha McSally today voted to give a lifetime judicial appointment to Missouri attorney Sarah Pitlyk, despite bipartisan opposition to Pitlyk’s nomination on the basis of Pitlyk’s anti-health care record and rhetoric and her “Not Qualified” rating from the American Bar Association. Today’s vote follows McSally’s Tuesday vote to advance Pitlyk’s nomination.

Key points on Pitlyk’s anti-health care record:

Martha McSally votes with Mitch McConnell 98% of the time, and Pitlyk’s confirmation marks just the latest example in a long string of Martha McSally votes to give lifetime appointments to anti-health care judges.

“Today’s vote is just the latest proof that Arizonans can’t trust Martha McSally to protect our health care in Washington — because she’ll always side with her party and special interest backers instead of standing up for Arizonans,” said Brad Bainum, Arizona Democratic Party spokesperson.
