(BISMARCK, ND) – Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are gunning for another shot at sabotaging North Dakotans’ health care if Kevin Cramer and others are elected to the Senate – but they want to keep it a secret from voters, with one political operative referring to their plans to take away health care from millions as “like fight club. […] First rule is not to talk about it.” That would mean North Dakotans could face higher premiums, less comprehensive coverage, an age tax, and no guarantee of coverage for pre-existing conditions.
“Health care sabotage is deeply unpopular, yet Kevin Cramer is following Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan to once again jeopardize health care – all because his out-of-state special interest donors want him to,” said Courtney Rice, Press Secretary for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL. “It’s high time Cramer stood with North Dakotans in protecting their care, not the special interests who bankroll his campaign.”
Reminder: Health care remains top of mind for voters. Results of a HuffPost/YouGov poll found “American voters are more likely to say they’re focused about health care than any other issue” and Kaiser Health reported that many Americans are worried “about their out-of-pocket costs increasing so high that” they won’t be able to afford care.
