Like most Republicans running campaigns in the midterms, Rep. Martha McSally, who is running for Jeff Flake’s Senate seat in Arizona, is lying to voters about their health care policies. She voted to repeal Obamacare and and do away with the preexisting conditions requirements, but now she claims it’s “character assassination” to bring that up.
“Well, Sean, I did vote to repeal and replace Obamacare on that House bill — I’m getting my ass kicked for it right now because it’s being misconstrued by the Democrats,” she said. “They’re trying to, you know, invoke fear in people who have family members or loved ones with pre-existing conditions.”
McSally has repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which is known as “Obamacare.”
In 2017, she voted for a Republican plan called the American Health Care Act. The bill would have repealed the existing health care law, allowing insurance companies to reject people with pre-existing conditions.
High-risk pools, on the other hand, means premiums so high that virtually no one could afford them. It means people like me would just die. If that reality makes McSally and the Republicans look bad, that’s because it should.
