Martha McSally Owns GOP Lawsuit To Strike Down Coverage Protections
McSally won’t stand up for Arizonans, one year after district court ruling struck down pre-existing condition coverage protections
PHOENIX — One year ago this week: a federal district court ruled in favor of AG Mark Brnovich and national Republicans’ effort to strike down pre-existing condition coverage protections as “unconstitutional” — and Martha McSally continues to be complicit in their suit to eliminate health care coverage protections:
- In December 2017, McSally voted to pave the way for Brnovich and national Republicans’ lawsuit to end pre-existing condition coverage protections.
- Ever since then, McSally has tried to misrepresent her record, but continued to stand by the lawsuit, infamously insisting that it isn’t her “role” to stand up for Arizonans’ health care.
- McSally’s positioning is no surprise: she has benefited from millions in corporate interest group TV ads and funded her campaigns with at least $198,700 from pharmaceutical, insurance, and health care industry corporate PACs.
- In return, McSally has long-supported returning to the days when predatory insurance companies could write their own rules and jack up prices against older Americans and people who have a pre-existing condition.
