Ohio Doctor and Health Advocate Call Out #OHSEN Field for Attacking Ohioans’ Healthcare, Supporting Elimination of the ACA
December 7, 2023
Bernie Moreno, Frank LaRose, and Matt Dolan Support Ripping Healthcare Away from Millions of Ohioans
Columbus, OH – Today, Ohio doctor Dr. Beth Liston and healthcare advocate Crystal Lett discussed the importance of the Affordable Care Act and electing a U.S. Senator in 2024 who will protect quality and affordable healthcare for Ohioans. Speakers also discussed Bernie Moreno, Frank LaRose, and Matt Dolan’s dangerous, anti-healthcare positions and support for eliminating the ACA – which would put 857,000 Ohioans at risk of losing their coverage and jeopardize care for nearly 2 million Ohioans with a preexisting condition.
“There are at least 2 million Ohioans with pre-existing conditions – like [my son] Noble – who could lose the protections the ACA puts in place for them. That’s why, to me, it is so important Ohioans know where Bernie Moreno, Frank LaRose, and Matt Dolan stand on this very critical issue,” said healthcare advocate Crystal Lett. “I cannot and will not sit by while Trump, Moreno, LaRose, and Dolan actively try to take healthcare away from the children and families who need it the most.”
“Make no mistake, Bernie Moreno, Frank LaRose, and Matt Dolan would vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act. They would not hesitate to kick the nearly 2 million Ohioans with preexisting conditions off their coverage, raise prices for Ohioans, and make it much harder for Ohioans to get the care they need,” said doctor and State Representative Beth Liston.
What you need to know about Bernie Moreno, Frank LaRose, and Matt Dolan’s attacks on Ohioans’ healthcare:
- Bernie Moreno: “[The Affordable Care Act] actually made health care much more expensive. So we have to let the markets work… So that’s, that’s answer number one on healthcare.”
- Frank LaRose: “Obamacare continues to be a disaster and I will work with [Trump] when I’m in the U.S. Senate to fix the many mistakes of the Obama and Biden administrations.”
- Frank LaRose in 2012: “I’m committed now more than ever to work to repeal this bad law and replace it with real healthcare reform…”
- Matt Dolan: “[The Affordable Care Act] was conceived wrongly, implemented poorly and has become a tool of partisan grift.”
