Ohio Republicans In Congress Won’t Stand Up To Trump To Protect Health Care

Following the U.S. House vote Wednesday to condemn the Trump administration’s legal efforts to overturn the Affordable Care Act, Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper released the following statement:

“Steve Chabot, Dave Joyce, Troy Balderson, Mike Turner: they all campaigned claiming that they would protect Ohioans’ health care. They all promised to protect pre-existing conditions. Today they had their chance and didn’t. Ohioans across our state would face devastating consequences if these legal efforts to overturn the Affordable Care Act succeed — so much so that even Republican Attorney General Dave Yost filed a brief in the case, advocating to protect 1.9 million non-elderly Ohioans with pre-existing conditions. It’s a shame Ohioans can’t trust these congressmen to keep their word.”
