WASHINGTON DC — Today, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) admitted that the GOP could revisit a repeal of the Affordable Care Act if they win enough seats in the 2018 midterm elections. Mitch McConnell is just the latest Republican leader to commit to continuing repeal efforts if Republicans maintain control of the U.S. Senate.  

Statement from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund: 

Republican Senate candidates are on the campaign trail running away from their record of undermining Americans access to health care. For weeks, Senate candidates have misrepresented their records of voting against people with pre-existing conditions in an effort to deceive voters. People want to be able to afford their health care, choose the best provider to meet their needs, and make health care decisions without government interference. Senator McConnell’s comments put the stakes of the election in stark relief. A McConnell-led Senate will mean a continuation of attacks on the Affordable Care Act, reproductive health care, access to care at Planned Parenthood health centers, and people with pre-existing conditions. We cannot afford these attacks on our health and we won’t stand for it. Across the country, voters are rallying around candidates who will fight for their health – not against it.
