Vulnerable Senate Republicans, led by North Carolina’s Thom Tillis, are trying – again – to cover-up their damaging health care records… and their latest legislative stunt is – again – being called out as a fraud.
The Los Angeles Times editorial board weighed in today with a scathing review:
And the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation’s Larry Levitt summed up the serious problems with the Senate GOP’s latest stunt on pre-existing conditions:
Unlike the ACA, the new Republican pre-existing condition bill would not disallow lifetime or annual limits, cap patient out-of-pocket costs, require coverage of essential benefits, prohibit gender rating, or provide subsidies to make premiums more affordable.— Larry Levitt (@larry_levitt) April 11, 2019
This is yet another sham GOP bill claiming to protect people with pre-existing conditions that fails to address the Trump administration’s dangerous lawsuit and doesn’t maintain the health care protections that exist under current federal law.
