Jeff Flake is breathing a sigh of relief right now — but that feeling will vanish when he has to explain his record to Arizonans. Jeff Flake has voted to repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act over twenty times — and thanks to this month’s debate over health care, we now know the Republican Party’s replacement: Trumpcare.
American Bridge President Jessica Mackler made the following statement:
“No matter how Jeff Flake tries to explain himself, he was always hell bent on stripping health care from Arizonans. This monstrosity of a bill is what he wanted when he fought shoulder-to-shoulder with Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell to vote over 20 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
“The more the American people learn, the more they are terrified of Trumpcare. It’s now clear that Trumpcare betrays millions of vulnerable Americans that Trump and Jeff Flake promised to help, kicking over 400,000 off their coverage in Arizona to give tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans. Even though he refuses to speak to Arizonans, they know exactly where Jeff Flake and the Republican Party stands, and you can count on them to hold him accountable at the ballot box.”
