Schumer Statement On Chad Readler’s Nomination To The Sixth Circuit Court Of Appeals

March 1, 2019

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding Chad Readler’s nomination to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals:
 
“When the Senate votes on the nomination of Chad Readler next week, every Republican will be forced to show their constituents and the American people whether or not they stand for pre-existing condition protections, more Americans having health coverage, protecting Medicaid, and all insurance plans covering maternity care and prescription drugs. As Mr. Readler is the author of the Trump administration’s decision to side with Republican attorneys general suing to repeal our health care law, Senate Democrats are united in opposing his nomination and we urge Republicans who claim to support protections for pre-existing conditions to join us in voting to reject him, as well.  Any Republican Senator who supports his nomination is supporting the Trump-Republican lawsuit to get rid of pre-existing condition protections and take away health coverage from millions of Americans.”
