Tillis Committee Vote Moves Supreme Court One Step Closer to Wiping Out Health Care

Raleigh, N.C. - This morning, Thom Tillis and his fellow Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Committee Democrats boycotted the vote in protest of the rushed process to put an anti-health care Justice on the Supreme Court. Coney Barrett has publicly expressed her hostility to the Affordable Care Act and is widely expected to strike down the law if confirmed. The Supreme Court will hear another challenge to the ACA on November 10th.

Piedmont Rising Executive Director Casey Wilkinson made the following statement:

“Tillis’ vote to advance Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination is a vote to wipe out health care for more than 600,000 North Carolinians, gut protections for 1.7 million North Carolinians with a pre-existing condition, make life-saving treatments like a COVID vaccine unaffordable, and spike the cost of premiums and prescription drugs. Even worse, Tillis is rushing this nomination through in the middle of a pandemic, when North Carolinians instead need expanded access to health care and continued economic relief. North Carolina voters know Tillis is more interested in serving Washington special interests than them, and they will reject his rush to wipe out their health care this November.”
