STATEMENT: TRUMP’S SUPREME COURT PICK A GRAVE THREAT TO HEALTH CARE ACCESS

WEST PALM BEACH — Grassroots advocacy group Floridians for a Fair Shake, advocating for an economy the works for everyone and affordable health care for all, issued the following statement on President Trump’s selection of Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the US Supreme Court. Communications director Stephen Gaskill:

“Unable to repeal health care outright, the president and Congressional Republicans have resorted to sabotage, which is driving up costs, limiting access, and creating instability in the health care market. Now, President Trump has the opportunity to deliver a death blow to the Affordable Care Act and reproductive rights. Brett Kavanaugh’s record proves him to be an extremist who will undercut the progress we’ve made in bringing affordable health care to everyone. His nomination must not lead to confirmation for this lifetime seat.”
