(BISMARCK, ND) – Kevin Cramer’s history of jeopardizing coverage for pre-existing conditions goes back long before the AHCA and his endorsement of the partisan lawsuit that would get rid of the current health care law. Once elected to Congress, Cramer voted five times to repeal the current health care law without a replacement, which would have gotten rid of vital patient protections and had devastating effects on North Dakotans. See what repealing the current health care law without a replacement would do to North Dakotans’ care:
- Nearly 300,000 North Dakotans with pre-existing conditions would lose protections that prevent insurance companies from denying them insurance entirely or charging higher premiums
- Older North Dakotans could be charged five times more for their care than younger people
- North Dakota seniors could be forced to pay more for prescription drugs
“No matter how much Kevin Cramer tries to rewrite history and paper over his record, North Dakotans know that, when push came to shove, Cramer prioritized his own political self-interest by consistently voting to gut protections for pre-existing conditions,” said Courtney Rice, Press Secretary for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL.
