Kari Lake: Elect Blake Masters Because “We Need To Overturn Obamacare”

Nov 02, 2022

According to a new report from HuffPost, on Monday, Arizona Republican gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake told a group of voters, “We gotta get Blake Masters in there […] we need a red wave and we need to overturn Obamacare.” 


Repealing the Affordable Care Act would gut coverage protections for 1.1 million individuals with pre-existing conditions in Arizona and spike health care costs across the board. While Democrats are focused on expanding health care coverage, many 2022 Republicans up and down the ballot are still running on a repeal-and-replace record, including Blake Masters, who has called the law a “disaster.”

Huffpost: Kari Lake Calls For Repealing Obamacare

Key Points:

  • “Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake called for repealing the Affordable Care Act at a campaign event on Monday”

  • “‘We need a red wave, and we need to overturn Obamacare and come up with something better,’ Lake said at a campaign event in Scottsdale. Her comments drew no audible reaction from the crowd.”

  • “‘They were going to do that, remember? And one of our old Arizona senators went in late at night and gave the old thumbs down. We’ll never forget that,’ she added, referring to the late Republican Sen. John McCain’s vote against repealing the law.”

  • “Most Republicans have abandoned their decade-long quest to repeal the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. None of the GOP’s Senate candidates are running on overturning the law, nor have they spoken about it on the campaign trail.”

  • “Arizona expanded Medicaid under Republican Gov. Jan Brewer in 2013, embracing a key part of Obamacare and covering vulnerable Arizonans who otherwise couldn’t afford health insurance. It’s unclear whether Lake also supports repealing the Medicaid expansion in her state. A request for comment from her campaign had not received a response as of late Tuesday.”
