DC politician Congressman Doug Collins has spent years trying to undermine the health care law and gut protections for 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions — all part of his reckless, special interest-backed agenda.
In addition to voting multiple times to gut the health care law in Congress and supporting a reckless Republican lawsuit that would overturn the entire law and threaten insurance coverage for millions, Collins has gone out of his way to repeatedly call for an end to the law and its critical protections like those for people with pre-existing conditions.
Watch Collins attack the health care law himself:
June 25, 2012: Collins claimed he wanted the Supreme Court to “overturn” the health care law and that in the Congress, “the first thing I will do is again, join with the House and vote to repeal [the law] from start to bottom.”
August 16, 2012: Collins said that he “want[s] to repeal [the health care law] and go back to a base” and that he was “not looking to repeal and replace.”
October 15, 2012: Collins said he wanted “to repeal [the health care law] outright” and again attacked efforts to offer a replacement.
October 21, 2012: When asked if there was “anything in [the law] that needs to stay,” Collins instead replied that he’d “rather just start over” and that replacing the law after repealing it “is not a good idea.”
August 11, 2012: When Collins was asked “is there anything about Obamacare that you would recommend keeping or support,” he responded by attacking the provisions in the law that allow Americans 26 and under to remain on their parents’ health insurance, saying, “I would rather have my kids out earning a living and buying their own insurance.”
October 15, 2012: Collins attacked the Medicaid expansion provision of the health care law that would provide health care to nearly 500,000 Georgians in the middle of a pandemic, saying “we cannot do that” in Georgia.
