Lawsuit would strip protections for the 1.7 million Michiganders with pre-existing conditions
James fully supported GOP tax law that served as legal basis for lawsuit
Failed politician John James is still standing by Trump and Republicans as they push a reckless lawsuit to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and strip away protections for 1.7 million Michiganders with pre-existing conditions within a year. The lawsuit was made possible by passage of the GOP tax law, which James fully supported.
James is continuing to prove he’s “2,000%” with the President – even when it means Michiganders with pre-existing conditions would suffer amid a pandemic. And despite his empty promises, he has no plan to protect Michiganders with pre-existing conditions.
“John James has vowed to repeal the ACA and he has no plan to protect people with pre-existing conditions,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “Despite his empty promises, James has proven he’s ‘2000%’ with Trump’s agenda of tearing down the health care law that guarantees protections for the 1.7 million Michiganders with pre-existing conditions. Michiganders simply can’t trust John James to protect their health care.”
The Michigan Democratic Party launched JohnJamesRevealed.com 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.
