The pre-existing lies of Senators John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer
(BISMARCK, ND) – ‘We need to maintain coverage for those with pre-existing conditions is nothing more than political rhetoric for Senators John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer. A talking point that they know constituents care very deeply about, they will say whatever to get elected. When it comes time to vote they are party loyal mindless robots. In a 52-47 vote, both Cramer and Hoeven voted for Chad Readler’s nomination to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.Hoeven and Cramer choose to vote for a judge who says protecting pre-existing conditions are unconstitutional and supports the Texas lawsuit that will eliminate coverage for pre-existing conditions. Sadly, none of this is surprising considering they both voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a viable alternative.
“Once again Kevin Cramer and John Hoeven’s talk about protecting pre-existing conditions is just that…talk” said Scott McNeil, Executive Director of the North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party. “Their votes for Judge Readler proves that both Senators Cramer and Hoeven are indifferent to the concerns of thousands of North Dakotans with pre-existing conditions.”
When Senators John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer are shaking hands and kissing babies and pretending to care about people with pre-existing medical conditions, just remember they have no intention to work across the aisle to find solutions. ‘We need to maintain coverage for those with pre-existing conditions,’ might be a nice 5-second sound bite, but it means nothing if you repeatedly vote the opposite.
