Over the course of his career, Chabot has taken over $100,000 from Big Pharma and health insurance PACs
Rep. Steve Chabot (OH-01) today voted against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Enhancement Act (H.R. 1425), a bill that would enhance the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The vote comes on the heels of President Trump and Republicans asking the Supreme Court last week to strike down all protections and benefits in the ACA amid the coronavirus outbreak. It’s no surprise that Chabot voted against affordable healthcare for Ohio families after taking over $100,000 from Big Pharma and health insurance PACs over the course of his career.
“During this global pandemic, when Ohioans need access to affordable healthcare more than ever before, Rep. Steve Chabot sided with the Big Pharma special interests that bankroll his campaign,” said End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller. “Chabot’s vote was bought by corporate special interests and we’ll make sure voters remember this vote against affordable health care.”
While the Trump Administration is trying to strip healthcare protections from 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions and rip coverage away from 23 million Americans, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Enhancement Act passed by House Democrats today would lower health coverage costs, negotiate for lowering the cost of prescription drugs, expand healthcare coverage, combat inequity in health coverage experienced by communities of color, and strengthen protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions.
