Ads highlight one year since Republicans argued in federal court that “protections for pre-existing conditions should be ruled unconstitutional

When asked if she agreed with the lawsuit, Ernst said “I am not an attorney”

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is launching a new digital ad today highlighting Senator Joni Ernst’s refusal to stand up to the GOP’s toxic lawsuit to gut pre-existing conditions coverage and other protections, including maternity care and keeping kids on their parents’ insurance until age 26.

When asked whether she supports the lawsuit, Ernst ducked the question, saying, “Um, I am not going to make a determination on that, I am not an attorney.”

“You don’t need a law degree to know this lawsuit will harm Iowans – from those with pre-existing conditions to families already worrying about the cost of care,” said DSCC spokesman Stewart Boss. “After voting again and again to dismantle health care protections for Iowans and helping pass the reckless tax law that made this suit possible in the first place, Ernst has made it clear that Iowans can’t afford her dangerous health care agenda.”
