(BISMARCK, ND) – Today Kevin Cramer’s D.C. bosses issued new rules that make it easier for states to discriminate against folks with pre-existing conditions by allowing insurers to offer plans that don’t cover diseases such as asthma, cancer, diabetes, or depression.
“Kevin Cramer claims that he’s always protected coverage for pre-existing conditions, but the truth is that he and his Washington, D.C. bosses have consistently chipped away at North Dakotans’ access to affordable care,” said Courtney Rice, Press Secretary for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL. “Unfortunately for Cramer, health care has become the defining issue in this race and North Dakotans won’t stand for a career politician who has repeatedly voted for spiked costs and stripped coverage.”
Reminder: Kevin Cramer is full of empty promises when it comes to providing accessible affordable health care to North Dakotans. He voted 65 times to repeal or undermine the current health care law and supports an ill-conceived lawsuit – which could have done away with protections for folks with pre-existing conditions. He also voted to impose an ‘Age Tax’ on North Dakotans ages 50-64, and spike costs for many others.
