Americans for Prosperity Action: McCaskill Votes to Strip Missourians’ Health Care Coverage

Press Release

ARLINGTON, VA – Americans for Prosperity Action on Wednesday criticized Sen. McCaskill’s vote to strip health coverage from Missourians who benefit from short-term, limited-duration health care plans, and block the millions of Americans expected to take advantage of the much-needed quality, affordable alternative in the coming months.

The vote on S.J. Res 63 comes just one week after the Trump administration’s expansion of short-term health care plans took effect – an effort to help millions of Americans who have been priced out of Obamacare’s unaffordable costs while leaving Obamacare plans untouched.

AFP Action Senior Advisor Jeremy Cady issued the following statement:

“While Sen. McCaskill talks a lot about how she’s trying to make health care more affordable for the people of Missouri, she just cast a vote to do the exact opposite and force Missourians to remain uninsured or pay Obamacare’s high prices.

“Short-term health plans offer people quality insurance at a reasonable price and would decrease the number of uninsured Missourians—a policy every senator should support. Sen. McCaskill’s empty campaign rhetoric is as transparent as ever. Instead of using health care as a political talking point, she should be focused on providing Missourians better access to quality care.”
