The Republican lawsuit to drive up health care costs and gut coverage protections for people with pre-existing conditions is in court today, and the DSCC is launching new ads targeting Senator Mitch McConnell for refusing to take action to protect Kentuckians’ care. This is the DSCC’s latest investment in digital ads holding McConnell accountable for his toxic record on health care.
Senator McConnell has championed toxic proposals to spike costs and dismantle health care protections. He helped pass the reckless tax giveaway that laid the foundation for his party’s dangerous lawsuit, and when asked if he agreed with the lawsuit, McConnell has replied there was “nothing wrong” with it.
“As Republicans go to court to end protections for Kentuckians with pre-existing conditions, Senator McConnell should consider himself on notice,” said DSCC spokesperson Stewart Boss. “McConnell helped pass the reckless tax handout that made this lawsuit possible, and had he gotten his way, Senate Republicans would have passed legislation long ago to raise the cost of care and tear away coverage protection for his constituents. Senator McConnell is part of the problem and Kentuckians can’t afford his dangerous agenda.”
