Roughly one month ago, on June 7, Republicans announced they would use the court system in their ongoing efforts to spike health care costs and slash coverage — but Rick Scott is still backing the GOP’s lawsuit making coverage for pre-existing conditions unconstitutional.
In fact, Scott’s state of Florida is actually still a party to this lawsuit.
To mark this anniversary, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman David Bergstein released the following statement:
“Republicans like Rick Scott will use every tool they have — from the Senate to the courts — in order to increase health care costs for hard working Floridians and threaten critical coverage for pre-existing conditions. For one month voters of every political persuasion have spoken out against the GOP’s efforts to make coverage for pre-existing conditions unconstitutional, but all Scott cares about is advancing his own self-serving political agenda.”
