GA-Sen A: David Perdue (R) Caught Lying About His Record On Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions

Add him to the list:

U.S. Sen. David Perdue’s latest ad opens with a direct-to-camera assertion from the Republican: “Health insurance should always cover pre-existing conditions for anyone. Period.”

It’s his latest attempt to play to the middle of the electorate in a tight race against Democrat Jon Ossoff. Libertarian Shane Hazel is also in the contest.

The 30-second ad shifts to Perdue’s younger sister Debbie, a cancer survivor who said her sibling is “making a difference for all of us – anyone who says otherwise doesn’t know my big brother’s heart.”

Georgia Democrats have long been calling out Perdue’s record voting against protecting pre-existing conditions:

One year ago today, Senator David Perdue made his reckless priorities on health care clear when asked if he supported Republicans’ lawsuit to strip away protections for those with pre-existing conditions and gut the health care law, forcing millions off their coverage. His answer? “Of course.”

Now, Georgia families are at risk  after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit ruled in Texas v. United States last month to send the case back to the district court to determine whether to overturn the law entirely — including its protections for those with pre-existing conditions.

Perdue is now closer to his longheld goal of ripping apart the entire health care law, kicking millions of Americans off their insurance and making care unaffordable for many more.

What would Senator Perdue’s health care agenda mean for Georgia families?

And Perdue’s got the record to prove it: He’s voted multiple times to gut the health care law and undermine protections for Georgians with pre-existing conditions while raising costs and weakening coverage protections across the board. No matter how much damage it might cause for Georgia families, Perdue remains committed to his partisan crusade against Georgians’ health care.

But Perdue needs to keep lying because he’s in a tough re-election bid against Jon Ossoff (D. GA):

Though he’s been in office nearly six years, US Sen. David Perdue falls below the fifty percent threshold in an 11Alive Survey USA poll released Tuesday.
The raw numbers give Perdue an edge against his challenger, Democratic documentary filmmaker Jon Ossoff.  But our poll shows Perdue ahead of Ossoff 44 to 41 percent – which is a statistical tie, within the poll’s margin of error of about 5 percent.

“At this point, it’s any person’s race to lose. Incumbents usually like their poll numbers to be above fifty percent,” said Emory political scientist Dr. Andra Gillespie. “So anytime their numbers are below fifty percent, that’s a sign they need to hustle.”
