Ad Highlights Meijer’s Promise to Repeal the Affordable Care Act
Today, the DCCC released its first TV ad in Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District, “Struggling,” as part of a more than half a million dollar reservation in the Grand Rapids market in the weeks leading up to the election. This ad follows the nonpartisan elections forecaster Inside Elections shifting this race to a “Toss Up.”
Peter Meijer pledged to repeal the Affordable Care Act if elected, even though our country is in the midst of a pandemic. If Meijer had his way, the more than 300,000 Michiganders in the 3rd District with a pre-existing condition would be at risk of losing their care or being charged more. But that’s no difference for Meijer who has his $50 million-plus trust fund to rescue him if he gets sick.
Statement from DCCC Spokesperson Courtney Rice:
“Peter Meijer just doesn’t get it, and that makes sense when you remember he has a $50 million trust fund to fall back on. Why else would he support repealing the Affordable Care Act, with its protections for Michiganders with pre-existing conditions, during a deadly pandemic that has cost over 200,000 lives and left millions out of work?”
A lot of Michigan families are struggling.
But Peter Meijer has a fifty-million-dollar trust fund and doesn’t care about us.
Peter Meijer promised to “fully repeal” our health care protections, letting insurance companies “deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions” and charge older Americans five times more – an “age tax.”
That’s a lot of money for those of us who don’t have fifty-million-dollar trust funds.
Peter Meijer just doesn’t get it.
