Three Years Since Gardner Failed to Repeal the ACA, He’s Still Trying to Gut Protections for 2.4 Million Coloradans with Pre-existing Conditions

It’s been three years since the late Senator John McCain stopped Washington Republicans from repealing the Affordable Care Act — but Senator Cory Gardner, who voted for that effort, is still trying to gut coverage for 2.4 million Coloradans with pre-existing conditions. 

After Gardner failed to repeal the health care law, he despaired that “donors are furious” and pushed to pass a disastrous tax bill that paved the way for the current U.S. Supreme Court lawsuit to overturn the ACA in the middle of a pandemic.

John Hickenlooper released the following statement: 

“Leading during a pandemic starts with protecting Coloradans’ health care. But Cory Gardner has been a reliable rubber stamp as Washington Republicans try to gut access to health care for people with pre-existing conditions and continue President Trump’s lawsuit to rip coverage away from millions in the middle of a public health crisis.

“Coloradans are sick of Washington’s failures. In Colorado, we cut our uninsured rate by nearly two-thirds and are continuing to expand access to health care — not take it away. In the U.S. Senate, I’ll fight everyday for quality, affordable health care for all Coloradans.”
