John James Revealed: With Pre-Existing Conditions Coverage on the Line, James Would Be Rubber Stamp for Washington Republicans

Supreme Court will hear GOP lawsuit to end protections for pre-existing conditions coverage

John James has called law protecting people with pre-existing conditions a “monstrosity”

The Supreme Court has announced that it will hear a Republican lawsuit that would end coverage protections for 1.7 million Michiganders with pre-existing conditions.

Failed Senate candidate John James has made his opposition to expanding access to health care clear – calling the law that protects people with pre-existing conditions a “monstrosity” and vowing to repeal it as a senator. James has also echoed Trump’s blatant lie that Washington Republicans will “protect coverage for pre-existing conditions” despite the fact that Washington Republicans enabled and backed the lawsuit that would rip coverage away.

“John James’ ‘2,000%’ support for Trump makes clear he would stand with Washington Republicans and against Michiganders in stripping the coverage protections of 1.7 million people in our state with a pre-existing condition,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “Health care is on the ballot this November and John James has shown that he would be a rubber stamp for his party is rolling back Michiganders’ access to affordable care.”

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. Since announcing he’d run again, just over six months after his last failed bid, James has been hiding from Michigan voters and refusing to answer questions from Michigan media.
