Cramer-Endorsed “Lawsuit Threatens ‘Cataclysmic’ Hike In Health Insurance Costs”

(BISMARCK, ND) – IN CASE YOU MISSED IT from C.S Hagen at the High Plains Reader on how the Cramer-endorsed lawsuit threatens to not only strip folks with pre-existing conditions of their coverage but could spike insurance costs for everyone in North Dakota:

  • “What in the world got into [Stenehjem]?” former U.S. Representative Earl Pomeroy said. “And the fact that he won’t explain it is a complete mystery. I’ve never seen it. People have the right to expect that those holding public responsibility because of their elected office have a duty to explain why they’re taking the action they are on behalf of the public.
  • “…North Dakota deserves better. We at least deserve to know what he was thinking. Why does he hate this coverage so much? Why when the legislature passes Medicaid Expansion does he put the whole thing at risk?”
  • If the federal lawsuit is successful, the Affordable Care Act will be declared unconstitutional. Approximately 320,000 North Dakotans with pre-existing conditions will be in danger of losing their health insurance policies. Coverage for 47,000 others in the state will be lost, and everyone will see a “catastrophic” hike in insurance premiums, Pomeroy said.
  • “What happens if almost 50,000 people lose their coverage?” Pomeroy said. “People understand what is at risk relative to pre-existing conditions, but what they may not understand are the threats to premium rates in North Dakota.”
  • If the lawsuit succeeds, thousands will be out of health insurance. Hospitals will not turn the sick people away, but those who cannot pay will possibly face either a lifetime of doctor bills, or the bad debt will be passed on to other rate payers, Pomeroy said. “Uninsured individuals still needing medical services often can’t pay for them and that produces bad debt, and bad debt factors into the charges to everyone else,” Pomeroy said. “So costs go up, insurance claims go up, and the next thing you know insurance rates go up.
  • “In a state with the population of North Dakota this is a very substantial number that would be moving from insured to uninsured. Using the scale of our insurance market in the state, if 47,000 people suddenly lost their coverage it would be a cataclysmic event.”
  • Everyone will one day face pre-existing conditions, he said. “Everyone understands a couple of things: that they are at some point in their life’s journey going to develop health conditions,” Pomeroy said. “We’re all mortal. Right now they have the assurance that even if they need to go shopping, they are going to be able to get coverage because of the law that says they cannot use pre-existing conditions against you. The Stenehjem/Cramer lawsuit throws that law out, and then we’re back to the old days.”
  • A recent survey of 967 registered voters in North Dakota and performed by Change Research discovered that 60 percent of North Dakotans voted for Trump, and 54 percent want to keep what works with the Affordable Care Act and fix what doesn’t work. A total of 52 percent of those surveyed also stated that healthcare issues are the deciding factor on who to vote for in the U.S. Senate race between U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp and Cramer.

ND Dem-NPL Launches Voter Protection Hotline

(BISMARCK, ND) – Less than three weeks from Election Day, the North Dakota Democratic-NPL is relaunching its seven day a week, 24 hours a day Voter Hotline in an effort to make sure every eligible voter in North Dakota has the tools and information they need to exercise their right to vote.

Another Cramer Health Care Lie

(BISMARCK, ND) – It wouldn’t be a day that ends in ‘y’ if Kevin Cramer wasn’t spreading another falsehood about his health care record. During a filled-with-friendly faces town hall, open to the public only if you managed to find out its not-announced time and location, Cramer claimed that he supports coverage for pre-existing conditions and that, through CHAND – the state’s high-risk pool – there’s always been coverage for pre-existing conditions in North Dakota.

But CHAND, like every other health care policy Cramer supports, doesn’t offer the same protections as the current health care law. Don’t take it from us… From the Washington Post fact checker:

“CHAND, which charges premiums 35 percent higher than similar policies in North Dakota, has a 180-day waiting period for people with preexisting conditions and a $1 million lifetime cap on expenses. (There is no cap in the ACA.)”

Reminder: 52 percent of North Dakota voters say health care is very important when deciding their vote for U.S. Senate.

More on Cramer’s empty health care promises:

  • Cramer voted 65 times to repeal or undermine the current health care law, including five votes to repeal the law without a replacement. These votes could have increased health care costs and stripped away coverage, not to mention imposing an ‘Age tax’ on older North Dakotans.
  • Cramer supports an ill-advised partisan lawsuit that would gut vital patient protections that North Dakotans with pre-existing conditions rely on.


Cramer’s Disastrous Record on Native American Issues Can’t Be Covered Up By Election Year Spin

(BISMARCK, ND) – Kevin Cramer claims he’s been on the front lines of supporting Native American issues, but his record tells a different story.

Here are the facts:

  • Cramer vocally opposed the inclusion of a tribal provision in VAWA that allowed tribal councils to prosecute non-Indian defendants accused of violence against American Indian women, arguing that it was unconstitutional and claiming he would feel unsafe as a non-Native man going onto a reservation.
  • At a meeting with the Spirit Lake Tribal Council discussing the inclusion of the provision, Cramer’s remarks grew violent with him allegedly saying he would like to “[w]ring the tribal council’s neck and slam them against the wall” as he addressed a domestic violence survivor.
  • Now that it’s an election year, Cramer is trying to paper over his record but, as ThinkProgress points out, “his own record would also seem to contradict his support for this legislation.” 



Welcome to Cramer’s Chronicles where, every Friday, we’ll break down the latest and greatest weekly hits about Cramer’s crooked, self-serving, extreme, and gaffe-prone behavior that puts himself and his partisan politics ahead of North Dakotans.

25 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT POLITICAL OPPORTUNIST CRAMER. 25 days until Election Day + 25 must-know facts about Kevin Cramer = one political opportunist who will always put himself and his self-serving interests above North Dakota. Get all 25 facts here.

NORTH DAKOTANS RALLY FOR ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE CARE. On Tuesday, North Dakotans gathered to call on Cramer to finally put North Dakotans first and stop jeopardizing their health care. Among them was Jennifer Restemayer whose daughter Allison suffers from a genetic disorder and relies on protections in the current health reform law to get the treatments she needs to stay alive. But Cramer’s 65 votes to repeal or undermine the current health reform law and his support for the ill-advised partisan lawsuit threaten those protections. Read more about Jennifer and Allison’s story here.

“NO INSURANCE COMPANY SHOULD BE ABLE TO PUT A CAP ON THE LIFE OF MY CHILD.” High Plains Reader reports on the “tale of two economies” that is plaguing North Dakota thanks to decisions made by Cramer regarding agriculture and health care. From Jim Dotzenrod, state senator and Agriculture Commissioner candidate: “‘This lawsuit that is going on now, North Dakota should have stayed away from, but North Dakota has joined in and if it is successful it will take away about $27 million from rural hospitals.’ A hit, Dotzenrod said, that rural hospitals won’t recover from.”

POLLING CONFIRMS HEALTH CARE IMPORTANT IN SENATE RACE. New polling from Protect Our Care demonstrates just how big a factor health care is in this race. 52 percent of voters “say health care is very important when deciding their vote for the U.S. Senate” and 61 percent of voters have a “major concern” with Cramer’s votes to repeal the current health care law.

CRAMER “ALMOST DERAILED” TRADE TALKS WHILE SOYBEANS HAVE NOWHERE TO GO. Important grain grading trade negotiations in USMCA were “almost derailed” thanks to Cramer’s actions and rhetoric on trade, according to Canadian officials involved in the talks. On top of that, Cramer’s reckless support of the trade war is leading to “refugee” soybeans. According to CNBC, soybeans from 2017 are still in storage after China pulled its contracts. “Of the 15.9 million bushels left from that year’s crop, 12.1 million bushels are sitting in grain elevators. That is an increase of 68 percent.”

HIDING FROM DEBATES. Mark another debate that Cramer has declined, bringing the total to seven. Cramer and his team are trying to weasel out of the Prairie Public debate that was postponed due to Senate votes. Clearly, he’s too scared to debate the issues.

TWEET CARTOON OF THE WEEK. From the Forum’s Steve Stark:


Cramer Isn’t Running to Help North Dakota

(BISMARCK, ND) – It’s no secret that Kevin Cramer decided to run for Senate because an out-of-state billionaire promised to finance his campaign, but that hasn’t stopped him from complaining about having to convince North Dakotans he should be elected. Just this week, Cramer told CNN that he still doesn’t want to be running against Heidi. But if Cramer doesn’t want the job to help North Dakotans, why is he running?

“From refusing to stand up for farmers and businesses against the administration’s reckless trade war to jeopardizing access to affordable health care for thousands of North Dakotans to using his political office and campaigns to enrich himself, Cramer has proved time and again that he doesn’t deserve North Dakotans’ votes,” said Courtney Rice, Press Secretary for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL. “Cramer’s words make clear that he’s not running out of a sense of duty to North Dakotans, but rather out for his own political opportunism.”

This isn’t the first time Cramer has complained about the Senate – or stated that he liked the House better:

Cramer Claimed He May Want To Enjoy “The Slower Pace Of The Senate” When He Was Closer To Retirement. [KNOX, 1/11/18]  

Cramer On Senate Run: “If I Can Remain North Dakota’s Congressman […] And Have Another Republican Be The United States Senator For North Dakota, That’s My Preference.” [KTGO, 2/14/18]

Cramer Claimed He Wanted To Stay In “The People’s House” Because The Senate Was So Culturally Different. [KTGO, 4/25/18]

Cramer: “I Think I Am More A Man Of The House.” [KNOX, 1/11/18]

Cramer: “I Think There’s A Very Strong Case To Be Made That North Dakota Is Best Served By Me Staying In The House.” [WDAY, 1/17/18]

Pay-to-Play: Cramer’s “Conflicts of Interest” as Public Service Commissioner

(BISMARCK, ND) – Kevin Cramer’s history of pay-to-play is well-documented. While he was on the Public Service Commission, Cramer “willingly took thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from a coal mining company they were making decisions about.” This lead to a suit alleging that Cramer took “improper campaign contributions,” with the judge writing that Cramer’s actions were “ill-advised, devoid of common sense, and raises legitimate questions as to the appearance of impropriety.” As The Forum’s Jim Shaw writes, his actions “sure didn’t pass the smell test.”

Bottom line: Kevin Cramer always has, and always will, put himself first.

More on Cramer’s political opportunism:

Associated Press:

  • The Dickinson-based Dakota Resource Council and the Sierra Club filed a lawsuit last year aiming to stop the PSC from regulating the mining industry. The groups accused […] former [Public Service] commissioner Kevin Cramer — now the state’s sole member of the U.S. House of Representatives — of taking improper campaign contributions from coal mining officials.
  • [The judge who ruled on the case] said that while accepting such contributions maybe be legal, the decision to do so is “ill-advised, devoid of common sense, and raises legitimate questions as to the appearance of impropriety.”
  • The environmental groups allege $50,000 had been funneled to the commissioners from coal industry officials since 2006. According to the lawsuit, Cramer received more than $10,000 in donations from Houston businessman Corbin Robertson Jr. and his wife, Barbara, from 2008 through 2011.

Bismarck Tribune editorial:

  • “[W]hen it comes to campaign contributions and industry regulation, perception is reality.” Cramer’s decision to take these contributions “raises questions about… impartiality.”

Politico: “Paying family with campaign funds could dog Cramer in Senate bid.”

HEADLINE: KFYR: Rep. Kevin Cramer’s campaign fund use comes into question

McFeely: “It looks for all the world like Cramer is running because the pieces were in place to get a better job, even if he wasn’t convinced he wanted it in the first place. Opportunism.”

High Plains Reader: “Hamm and his net worth of $19.5 billion became the decision maker for Cramer accepting Hamm as his national finance chairman.”

WDAY: “[Cramer] didn’t want to risk losing his seat in the House… It was a call from oil tycoon Harold Hamm, whose net worth is $18 billion, that finally tipped the scales” to him running for U.S. Senate.


Political Calculation 101: Cramer Admits He Signed Onto Butch Lewis Act for Political Reasons

(BISMARCK, ND) – Kevin Cramer has used his support for the Butch Lewis Act to bolster his bipartisan credentials, but North Dakotans know that’s just more election year spin. Cramer admitted that the only reason he signed onto the Butch Lewis Act was because he “came to the realization that I wasn’t going to get a lot of support unless I jumped on.” Talk about political calculations.


Unlike Cramer, Heidi helped write the Butch Lewis Act to protect teamsters’ hard-earned pensions and secure a dignified retirement for thousands of North Dakotans. But Cramer doesn’t want Heidi to have any of the credit – he even lashed out at a North Dakota retiree who thanked Heidi for her work. Threatening his support for the bill, Cramer said that, by expressing gratitude toward Heidi, the pensioner was “jeopardizing the livelihoods of 1.5 million retirees.”


North Dakotans Rally for Access to Affordable Care, Call Out Cramer for Jeopardizing Coverage

“No insurance company should be able to put a cap on the life of my child” 

(BISMARCK, ND) – North Dakotans are calling out Kevin Cramer and his Washington, D.C. bosses for jeopardizing their health care. Cramer’s votes to repeal or undermine the current health care law 65 times and his support of a reckless, partisan lawsuit threaten protections for people with pre-existing conditions, jeopardizes access to affordable care in rural communities, and could charge older North Dakotans five times more for their care than younger people.

Unfortunately for Cramer, new polling from Protect Our Care finds that 52 percent of voters “say health care is very important when deciding their vote for the U.S. Senate” and 61 percent of voters have a “major concern” with Cramer’s votes to repeal the current health care law.

High Plains Reader: ‘Tale of Two Economies’
By C.S. Hagen

  • [Jennifer Restemayer, a] West Fargo resident displayed a picture of her daughter, Allison, who suffers from a genetic disorder, and wouldn’t be alive today if the Affordable Care Act hadn’t been passed.
  • Allison, a high school senior now, needs approximately $300,000 worth of hospital care every year just to live, she said. Before the Affordable Care Act was passed her hospital insurance bills were close to reaching the limit. She’s worried now with North Dakota joining a Texas lawsuit to declare the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional that she will have to go back to the days of denied healthcare coverage.
  • “Democrats and Republicans need to come together for families like mine so they don’t hit a lifetime max,” Restemayer said. “No insurance company should be able to put a cap on the life of my child.”
  • In an attempt to help spread Restemayer’s and other’s concerns about protecting current healthcare laws, a nonpartisan group, Protect Our Care, made its 26th stop at Fargo’s Island Park Tuesday morning to meet with candidates for state office.
  • While more than half of North Dakota wants to keep the Affordable Care Act and fix what doesn’t work, elected officials currently in power but up for reelection have launched a full-scaled assault to tear it all down, without a validated backup plan.
  • After 967 registered voters in North Dakota were recently surveyed, the poll discovered that most people – 60 percent – voted for President Donald Trump, and 54 percent want to keep what works with the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, while 36 percent would rather start over with new healthcare laws.
  • A total of 52 percent of those surveyed stated that healthcare issues are the deciding factor on who to vote for in the U.S. Senate election, according to Change Research, an organization attempting to make polling accessible and affordable.
  • Additionally, 47 percent strongly opposed U.S. Congressman Kevin Cramer’s support of the state joining the Texas federal lawsuit to declare the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional. Another 61 percent of people said it was a major concern that Cramer voted to repeatedly repeal the Affordable Care Act.
  • Senator Jim Dotzenrod is running for the state’s Agricultural Commissioner, and said the current situation is a “tale of two economies,” with farmers taking most of the punches. First, the agricultural community was preparing for a tough year, he said, then came the trade war with China, which is hurting trade deals painstakingly made over years of negotiations with China. And now as the federal lawsuit further threatens to eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions, of which 102,000 people in Fargo currently have and more than 60 percent of Cass County farmers share, Dotzenrod questioned how much worse can conditions get for the agricultural community.
  • “We are seeing some big issues affecting us with agriculture and healthcare,” Dotzenrod said. “This lawsuit that is going on now, North Dakota should have stayed away from, but North Dakota has joined in and if it is successful it will take away about $27 million from rural hospitals.” A hit, Dotzenrod said, that rural hospitals won’t recover from.
  • The Affordable Care Act and Medicaid Expansion has helped the state, especially in rural areas, but if the Texas lawsuit is successful, all help will disappear. “Unfortunately, all of that is now threatened by this unusual, ideological lawsuit by attorneys in Texas,” [Mac] Schneider said. “This might sound strange coming from an attorney, but you don’t have to sue about everything. This is the time to fight for healthcare.”

While North Dakota Braces for Long-term Impacts of Tariffs, Cramer “Almost Derailed” Trade Talks

ND ag bankers are told to “brace for a ‘long’” and “unpredictable, unforeseen event with extreme consequences

(BISMARCK, ND) – The Cramer-endorsed trade war is having disastrous consequences across North Dakota, not only for farmers but for bankers, agribusinesses, and the state’s overall economy. AgWeek reports that “the period of soybean price reductions due to the Chinese trade war […] will have a ‘long’ effect” on the state,” specifically citing “secondary effects” to agribusinesses.

Meanwhile, CNBC reports that North Dakota “soybeans from 2017 are still in storage after China pulled its contracts. Of the 15.9 million bushels left from that year’s crop, 12.1 million bushels are sitting in grain elevators. That is an increase of 68 percent.”

And what has Kevin Cramer done to mitigate these disastrous effects? He’s continued to pay lip service to North Dakota’s farmers, claiming he doesn’t support tariffs but still standing with the administration 100 percent when it comes to implementing them. What’s worse, now AgWeek reports that Cramer’s actions and rhetoric “almost derailed” trade negotiations with Canada. According to several officials in Canada, Cramer’s “public comments during the negotiations… almost derailed the inclusion of [a revision to the grain grading system] in the final agreement.”

AgWeek: ND ag bankers riding the ‘black swan’

  • The period of soybean price reductions due to the Chinese trade war, initiated by the Donald Trump administration, will have a “long” effect, says a North Dakota State University distinguished professor of agricultural economics.
  • Wilson said the U.S. “would have to capture virtually 100 percent of every other small market to offset what we lost from China, which is impossible. It can’t happen.”
  • In an analysis in April 2018, Wilson calculated that soybean prices should be about $13 per bushel in the absence of a trade war, and about $7 per bushel with a trade war. “We’re just under $7 per bushel right now,” he said.
  • Wilson, who researches and teaches grain marketing, showed a Thomson Reuters map that plots the physical coordinates of soybean shipments moving worldwide. Trade showed ships going all over the world in December 2016 but in July 2018, no ships were leaving the U.S.
  • That’s an effect on farmers, and then secondary effects will come to agribusinesses, He concluded: “I’m really scared of where we are,” Sinner said, adding, “We’ve got a big problem.”

CNBC: Farmers struggle to store crops as US tariffs start to take their toll

  • United States tariffs are beginning to take their toll on farmers and the storage, shipping and freight operations they need to move their crops to market.
  • In North Dakota, soybeans from 2017 are still in storage after China pulled its contracts. Of the 15.9 million bushels left from that year’s crop, 12.1 million bushels are sitting in grain elevators. That is an increase of 68 percent.
  • “There aren’t any shipping contracts to move them out of those facilities and get them to ports in the Pacific Northwest for export, either,” said Simon Wilson, executive director of the North Dakota Trade Office.
  • With this year’s crop now being harvested, the lack of available storage means some soybeans may have to be stored on the ground in bags, a challenge for this temperamental crop. According to the North Dakota Soybean Growers Association, farmers in the state contracted to sell an estimated 40 percent of the 2018 crop.


Cramer Too Scared to Debate Heidi, Hiding From the Issues

(BISMARCK, ND) – Not only has Kevin Cramer previously declined six debates with Senator Heitkamp but now he’s attempting to weasel his way out of an already scheduled debate with Prairie Public and AARP, using the Supreme Court vote as an excuse to avoid discussing the issues that are important to North Dakotans like access to affordable health care and the ongoing trade war.

And when Cramer isn’t purposefully dodging debates, he’s busy twisting himself into a pretzel trying to paper over his anti-North Dakota record… all because it’s an election year.

Here’s a live look:


Missed Debates:
Bismarck Tribune: “The first debate in North Dakota’s U.S. Senate race is postponed due to pending Senate votes, but it’s unclear if the event will be rescheduled […] Prairie Public producer Matt Olien said he’s ‘not optimistic’ it will happen after discussion with Cramer’s campaign.”

NDxPlains: Cramer Dodges Farm Debate for Fundraiser in Texas
“Cramer’s snub of today’s debate is the latest in a growing list. According to people familiar with the debate requests, Cramer has declined one of the two debates with AARP and Prairie Public. He said “no” to a KFGO debate on statewide radio, and turned down a debate on Fox News. He has also rejected another farm-based debate with the Chamber of Commerce Ag Forum in conjunction with ND Soybean Council. It turns out, he has rejected more debates than he has accepted.”

Papering Over His Record:
Washington Post: Would the House GOP plan have prevented ‘price discrimination’ against people with preexisting conditions?
“Thus Cramer goes too far to claim that in the AHCA, there are ‘safeguards to make sure that there’s not price discrimination as a result of preexisting conditions.’ […] He earns Three Pinocchios.”

“Whatever Cramer’s wish is, his votes jeopardize coverage as it stands for pre-existing conditions in the individual market, according to Karen Pollitz, senior fellow at the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonprofit health care organization […] In practice, plans for individuals in the nongroup market would become exorbitantly priced, if available at all.”


Cramer’s Symbolic Health Care Votes

(BISMARCK, ND) – Here comes more election year spin from Kevin Cramer: While Cramer has consistently voted to undermine North Dakotans’ access to affordable health care, he’s now trying to paper over his record with toothless resolutions that don’t take any concrete action to safeguard protections for folks with pre-existing conditions.

The Washington Examiner reports that “endangered” House Republicans, including Cramer, offered a “sense of the House” resolution that “discusses the need to protect pre-existing condition protections, but [it] is not legislation.” That’s typical for Cramer though – he referred to his previous 65 votes to undermine North Dakotans’ health care ‘symbolic’ – and has continually paid lip service to North Dakotans about his dangerous health care record.

Earlier this week, the ND Dem-NPL released a digital ad, “Empty Promises,” to hold Kevin Cramer accountable for his empty promises to protect North Dakotans with pre-existing conditions.
