ICYMI: Josh Hawley’s Lawsuit is a “Slap in the Face” to Missourians with Pre-Existing Conditions

When asked, Hawley was unable to name any policy proposals to cover those who would no longer be insured thanks to his lawsuit.

ICYMI: LA Times: The GOP claims its proposal would protect people with preexisting conditions. That’s a lie.

According to The Los Angeles Times, Republicans are desperate to distract from a lawsuit filed by Josh Hawley and 19 other Republican Attorneys General that could strip those with pre-existing conditions of their health insurance. While Hawley himself has tried to claim that a recent bill proposed by Senate Republicans would undo the damage of his lawsuit, the LA Times called the idea that the new bill would protect individuals with pre-existing conditions "a lie." Kaiser Family Foundation senior vice president Larry Levitt also criticized the bill's promises as "something of a mirage."
