Roughly one month ago, on June 7, Republicans announced they would use the court system in their ongoing efforts to spike health care costs and slash coverage — but Kevin Nicholson and Leah Vukmir are still backing the GOP’s lawsuit making coverage for pre-existing conditions unconstitutional.

To mark this anniversary, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman David Bergstein released the following statement:

“Republicans like Kevin Nicholson and Leah Vukmir will use every tool they have — from the Senate to the courts — in order to increase health care costs for hard working Americans and threaten critical coverage for pre-existing conditions. For one-month voters of every political persuasion have spoken out against the GOP’s efforts to make coverage for pre-existing conditions unconstitutional, but all Nicholson and Vukmir care about is advancing their own self-serving political agenda.”
