Received this e-mail yesterday from Jon Ossoff’s (D. GA) U.S. Senate campaign:
In the midst of an out-of-control pandemic, insurance industry-backed GOP officials just filed legal briefs asking the Supreme Court to DISMANTLE the Affordable Care Act.
This would END health care protections for women, young people, and tens of millions of us with pre-existing conditions.
Democrat Jon Ossoff's GOP opponent, Senator David Perdue, said he “of course” wants the lawsuit to succeed–calling the Affordable Care Act “untenable,” “unconscionable,” and “a total bust.”
(Shocker: Perdue has taken more than $250,000 from health industry PACs.)
David Perdue's record on health care has been disastrous for Georgians:
- Perdue has voted *14* times to gut the ACA
- He says he opposes Medicaid expansion, which would benefit hundreds of thousands of Georgians.
- And he's taken over $250,000 from health industry PACs!
Now he's backing a lawsuit to pad insurance industry profits by ending vital consumer protections for women, young people, and 1.8 million Georgians with pre-existing conditions!
Unlike Perdue, Jon Ossoff will fight to ensure every Georgian has great health care and great health insurance.
Jon will work to strengthen and improve the Affordable Care Act, and strongly back Medicaid expansion.
Thanks for your help,
Also, Stacey Abrams is determined to make sure the GOP doesn’t steal this race from Ossoff. I received this e-mail yesterday from Abrams in support of Ossoff’s campaign:
We just had our primary elections in Georgia.
Even in the face of incompetence and voter suppression on the part of Georgia's Secretary of State, Georgia Democrats SHATTERED turnout records. We nominated a man I am proud to endorse for the U.S. Senate: my friend Jon Ossoff.
AND GET THIS: For the first time since 2008, Georgia's Democratic Primary voters exceeded Republican primary voters. We are building huge momentum here!
You all know my friend Jon Ossoff as the inspiring young Democrat who broke turnout and grassroots fundraising records in the historic Special Election for Georgia's Sixth District three years ago.
Jon came up just a few thousand votes short in the most expensive Congressional race of all time — and amidst suspicious destruction of election data — after running a historic campaign that built a huge progressive infrastructure in Georgia.
You may not know that Jon is also a former Congressional national security aide who now works as a media executive and investigative journalist, and that Jon does amazing work exposing corruption, war crimes, and human rights abuses worldwide.
Jon leads a business that investigates powerful corporations, human traffickers, and other bad actors for major news organizations.
And when he worked in Washington, Jon made a name for himself on Capitol Hill by helping investigate mass surveillance of American citizens and malfeasance by federal contractors.
When it comes to fighting corruption, Jon Ossoff does not back down.
When I ran for Governor in 2018, Georgia voters saw corruption and the abuse of power up close — a voting system that failed by design and disenfranchised countless Georgia voters.
Last week, we saw the same voting system fail us again, so we must work harder than ever to mobilize and protect voters so that Jon can win.
Jon Ossoff is currently leading his Republican opponent in the polls. But for Jon to win, we have to double down on our efforts to defend voting rights and ensure every vote is counted in Georgia.
So I'm asking you now: to defend our values, to deliver TWO U.S. Senate victories in Georgia and win the White House, to send a message that will echo through history, please join me in chipping into Jon's campaign TODAY.
In this together,
