In response to Senator Flake’s vote to advance his toxic health care agenda, today Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman David Bergstein released the following statement:
“The plan Senator Flake voted to inflict on Arizonans today would drive up premiums by 20 percent, impose an age tax on older Americans, and strip away coverage for pre-existing conditions — all to give big insurance companies and the wealthiest few another tax break. Unfortunately, Senator Flake’s vote is perfectly in line with his record: for years he’s championed plans that would increase health care costs and sold out working families to benefit himself. Senator Flake’s vote is a defining demonstration of why he cannot be trusted to stand up for Arizonans in the Senate, and in 2018 voters will hold him accountable.”
Ahead of today’s vote, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee launched radio ads on Senator Flake’s long record of voting to spike healthcare costs and strip coverage.
