DNC on Mike Pence Campaigning for Luther Strange

Ahead of Mike Pence’s visit to Birmingham, Alabama to campaign for Senator Luther Strange, DNC Spokesperson Francisco Pelayo released the following statement:

“As Mike Pence descends on Alabama to campaign for Senator Luther Strange, his visit serves as a reminder that Senate Republicans, including Strange, support the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson health care repeal bill, which would reduce access to care, open the door for insurers to increase premiums for people with pre-existing conditions, and remove guaranteed coverage for essential health benefits. Strange is part of the Washington swamp and just last week Donald Trump commended Strange for his ‘loyalty’ to the Republican repeal effort that would cut funding to Alabama by billions Trump, Pence and Strange should put party politics aside and instead work with Democrats towards bipartisan solutions that expand health care coverage for all Americans.”
