YIKES: In CPR Trainwreck Interview, Gardner Dodges Questions On ACA Repeal *SIX* Times & Admits He Opposes Universal Health Care
Gardner Won’t Say If Trump Has Done Anything to Lose His Endorsement
Denver, CO – In Senator Cory Gardner’s trainwreck first public radio interview of the general election, Gardner dodged six separate questions about the Trump Administration-backed lawsuit to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), even though Gardner previously said he believes the ACA is “unconstitutional” and has crusaded against the life-saving law, voting at least 13 times to repeal, gut, or defund the ACA.
After several dodges, Gardner admitted that he “does not support universal health care.”
The Trump Administration’s briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court in the Gardner-backed lawsuit to upend the ACA “explicitly argu[e] that the ACA’s preexisting condition protections should be killed,” putting protections for 2.4 million Coloradans in jeopardy and threatening to rip care away from an estimated 470,000 Coloradans.
That wasn’t Gardner’s only cringeworthy dodge on Colorado Public Radio. Gardner also:
- Wouldn’t say if Trump has done anything to lose his endorsement, despite his botched coronavirus response and inflammatory rhetoric.
- Refused to oppose William Perry Pendley to lead the Bureau of Land Management, despite his opposition to public lands and long history of climate science denial and xenophobia.
- Wouldn’t comment on reports that the Trump Administration was aware of intelligence that Russia was offering bounties in Afghanistan for targeting U.S. troops as early as 2019.
