A new study released today by a nonpartisan consumer advocacy group found that a record 5.4 million American workers have lost their health insurance in the middle of an unprecedented public health and economic crisis — an estimate that’s “nearly 40 percent higher than the highest previous increase.”
Despite the millions of American workers unemployed and uninsured through no fault of their own, Senate Republicans are STILL making it harder for Americans to get health coverage during a global pandemic:
Republicans’ choice to make it more difficult for Americans to get health coverage in a pandemic is both wrong and deeply unpopular. Recent polling also shows broad support across the political spectrum for protecting people with pre-existing conditions and other key aspects of the ACA that Republicans are pushing the Supreme Court to dismantle. Health care is emerging again as a “massive political liability” for the GOP this cycle and is taking “center stage” in the battle for control of the Senate, as its importance to voters hits its highest point in recent years.
