MEMO: Likely SCOTUS Nominees Have Long Anti-Health Care Records

Tillis Has Promised to Rubber Stamp Trump Nominee Who Will Gut Health Care for North Carolinians

RALEIGH, N.C. - A new memo released today by Piedmont Rising Action details the troubling  anti-health care records of five potential Trump nominees to the Supreme Court. Shortly after Justice Ginsburg’s passing, Tillis said he would rubber stamp any Trump Supreme Court nominee, reversing his 2016 position when he insisted that the Senate not confirm a nominee during a presidential election year. Many of Trump’s potential nominees have long records of working to undermine the Affordable Care Act and take away health care.

“Thom Tillis has pledged to rubber stamp any of Trump’s list of hyperpartisan activist nominees, each of whom is bent on stripping away health care from millions of people,” said Piedmont Rising Executive Director Casey Wilkinson. “A vote for any Trump nominee is a vote to wipe out pre-existing condition protections for 1.7 million North Carolinians, take away health care from 600,000, drive up the cost of care, and spike prescription drug costs. Tillis is a coward who is yet again bending to the will of his Washington party bosses no matter the cost for North Carolina families.”
