Last night President Trump again took action to end the Affordable Care Act, (ACA).
He led an attack against the health of all people in this country last night by filing to dismantle the ACA during a pandemic. Ironically, yesterday marked the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the south and southwestern US since April. This act of cruelty shows a complete disregard for the health and well being of the American people Trump is elected to represent.
Collins voted against the ACA over ten times and signed on to a brief arguing that if the individual mandate was killed the ACA should be struck down. Collins voted for the tax scam, repealed the individual mandate and was a vote to repeal the ACA. Any strongly worded statements are too late. Collins had 24 years to work on protecting the health care for people with pre-existing conditions and did nothing.
And don’t forget her vote for Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Collins argued that women who have been sexually assaulted don’t remember who their attackers are. OH?
Where is The Republican Press Herald on this? We know. Avoiding the subject altogether.
`MHN.com note: “The case is likely to be argued this fall during the closing stages of a bitter presidential election in which health care is certain to be a galvanizing issue. Joseph R. Biden, Jr., the presumptive Democratic nominee, continues to support improving and expanding the ACA with an option to buy a public plan, rather than replacing it with a “Medicare for all” system preferred by many in the left wing of the party,” appeared in a The New York Times, front page article on Saturday, June 27, 2020, “Economic Woes Increase Stakes for Obamacare.”
