Where is Kelly Armstrong’s Replacement Healthcare Plan
(BISMARCK, ND) – A resolution condemning the Administration’s support of a federal lawsuit that could overturn the Affordable Care Act and risk coverage for pre-existing conditions and Medicaid expansion went to a vote in the House of Representatives today. If Kelly Armstrong got his way, 20,000 North Dakotans who gain health care through Medicaid expansion and 316,000 North Dakotans with pre-existing conditions would see their health care in jeopardy. With that much at stake, you would think Kelly Armstrong would have a viable alternative to the ACA.If you thought yes, you would be wrong. If you look at Kelly Armstrong’s website under the issue of health care, you’ll find… well, nothing.

“Today Kelly Armstrong made it loud and clear that he wants to risk health care coverage for hundreds of thousands of North Dakotans,” said Alison Jones Communications Director for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL. “What is still a mystery is what Congressman Armstrong’s plan is to replace the ACA. The fact that he cannot have a basic webpage on his views on an issue that impacts every single North Dakotan is simply arrogant. ”
