(BISMARCK, ND) – In response to Congressman Cramer announcing his support for the ill-advised, partisan lawsuit that would no longer guarantee health care coverage for the more than 300,000 North Dakotans who have a pre-existing condition, Scott McNeil, Executive Director of the North Dakota Democratic-NPL released the following statement:
“This blatant attack on North Dakotans’ health care is reprehensible and Congressman Cramer should be ashamed to support it. Pre-existing conditions affect almost every individual and family in North Dakota – if you don’t have a pre-existing condition, you almost certainly know someone who does. North Dakotans won’t soon forget how Cramer turned his back on them.”
The Kaiser Family Foundation recently found that protections for pre-existing conditions have become the most important health care concern among voters, and ranked the most important campaign issue for many of them overall. That isn’t stopping Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and Cramer’s D.C. bosses from repeatedly attempting to sabotage health care: now they’re just trying to keep it a secret from voters. Don’t forget: Cramer has voted 65 times to repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act.
