BREAKING — John James Still Refuses to Oppose GOP-Led Lawsuit to End Protections for Pre-Existing Conditions As SCOTUS Sets Oral Arguments

SCOTUS set to hear lawsuit week after election that could gut the health care law amid pandemic

James fully supported GOP tax law that served as legal basis for lawsuit

The Supreme Court just announced they will hear oral arguments on November 10, the week after the election, for the Trump-Republican led lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act and gut protections for pre-existing conditions.  

But failed politician John James is still refusing to break with his Washington allies as they threaten the health care law which protects 1.7 million Michiganders with pre-existing conditions – and he’s failed to put forth any plan to protect coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

James said he “fully support(s)” the GOP tax bill which served as the legal basis of the lawsuit to eliminate the health care law. And the Trump administration has even said Republicans who supported the tax bill “knowingly” did so to “destroy” the ACA.

“John James has promised in his own words to repeal the ACA and has failed to oppose the lawsuit that would end protections for pre-existing conditions coverage for 1.7 million Michiganders,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “Michiganders simply can’t trust John James to protect their health care – his empty rhetoric is nothing more than a lie as he refuses to break from his party and moneyed special interests to do what’s right for Michigan families.” 

The Michigan Democratic Party launched to hold the failed U.S. Senate candidate accountable for his positions – including those made over the course of the 2018 campaign that he then tried to delete after losing that campaign. For the first year of his campaign, James was largely in hiding from Michigan press and voters to try to paper over his out-of-touch record, and has only come out of hiding after facing scrutiny from Michiganders.
