TODAY: BRETT KAVANAUGH CONFIRMATION COULD TAKE AWAY YOUR HEALTH CARE, COMPLETING TRUMP AND CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS’ SABOTAGE OF THE ACA

SARASOTA — Confirmation hearings on Brett Kavanagh’s nomination to the US Supreme Court begin today, and while the Trump administration is withholding thousands of documents that would shed light on his judicial philosophy, one thing is clear: Kavanaugh is poised to take away health care from millions of Americans. He has criticized Chief Justice John Roberts’ reasoning for upholding the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and is on the record supporting the notion that presidents can pick and choose which laws to follow, providing an invitation to President Trump and Congressional Republicans to complete their sabotage of the ACA.

Floridians for a Fair Shake Communications Director Stephen Gaskill issued the following statement:

“If confirmed by the US Senate, Brett Kavanaugh will be the deciding vote in repealing health care for millions of Americans. President Trump and Congressional Republicans like Vern Buchanan have been sabotaging the Affordable Care Act and chipping away at its protections. But Kavanaugh could be the death knell of the ACA, resulting in Americans losing access to affordable, quality health care.”
