As GOP Lawsuit Moves Forward, Tillis Has Already Confirmed He Supports Ending Protections for Pre-Existing Conditions

Republicans are plowing forward with their effort to overturn the Affordable Care Act in the courts today, even though the current pandemic has exposed Senator Tillis and Republicans’ positions on health care as dangerous and out-of-step with North Carolinians.

The Affordable Care Act protects North Carolinians hurt by the coronavirus from being denied coverage for a pre-existing condition or charged more for their care, yet Republicans – with Senator Tillis’ support – are arguing to eliminate the entire law and those protections. Tillis has consistently jeopardized North Carolinians’ health care:

“Even amid a global public health crisis, Republicans are still pushing to eliminate protections for North Carolinians with pre-existing conditions with Senator Tillis’ full support,” NCDP spokesman Robert Howard said. “Senator Tillis and Washington Republicans will never stop trying to take away North Carolina’s health care and the protections many families depend on, which is why we will elect new leaders to the Senate this November.”
