Congresswoman Martha McSally voted four times to repeal the Affordable Care Act and protections for pre-existing conditions, proclaiming before the last vote let’s get this “f*cking thing” done and promising shortly after the divisive primary she would vote to repeal health care. So when she claimed in her new ad to want to protect that coverage – she was held accountable.
3TV/CBS 5 Phoenix WATCH:
Reporter Dennis Welch : While McSally is now claiming she is trying to force insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions, that was not the case last year when Republicans tried unsuccessfully to repeal Obamacare we caught up with the Senate candidate out in the west valley today… we asked her about that vote she took in may 2017 to repeal the ACA. The bill – known as the American Health Care Act – it would have weakened protections for people will pre-existing conditions and it would have allowed insurance companies to charge them more money to stay insured, potentially costing them thousands of dollars more every year.
