McSally Votes For Anti-Health Care McConnell “Protege”

Martha McSally Votes To Give A Lifetime Judicial Appointment To
Anti-Health Care Mitch McConnell “Protege”

Justin Walker has criticized the Affordable Care Act, which prevents insurance companies from discriminating against older Americans and people with pre-existing conditions

PHOENIX — True to her record of voting with Mitch McConnell 97% of the time, U.S. Sen. Martha McSally today voted to give a lifetime appointment to Justin Walker, a McConnell “protege” who’s faced scrutiny over his hostility to the Affordable Care Act, which prevents insurance companies from denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.

Walker has defended his past comments, including his assertion that it was “indefensible” for the Supreme Court to uphold the health care law in 2012.

Since her appointment to the Senate, McSally has been a virtual rubber stamp for a number of controversial judicial picks, including numerous anti-health care judges and Betsy DeVos ally Steven Menashi, who helped DeVos come up with an “illegal” plan to “screw” defrauded student borrowers.

“Martha McSally puts her party bosses and corporate backers first in Washington, so it’s no surprise she’s giving a lifetime judgeship to Mitch McConnell’s protege — especially given their shared hostility to the law that keeps insurance companies from increasing prices on Arizonans with pre-existing conditions,” said Brad Bainum, Arizona Democratic Party spokesperson.
