Martha McSally Votes To Confirm Anti-Health Care Judge
Like McSally, Michael Truncale has publicly called for gutting protections for pre-existing condition coverage, opposed limits on money in politics, and attacked earned benefits like Social Security and Medicare
PHOENIX — U.S. Sen. Martha McSally on Tuesday once again proved that she isn’t putting Arizonans first in the U.S. Senate, voting to confirm Michael Truncale, who supports gutting pre-existing condition coverage protections, to a lifetime federal judge appointment.
Truncale was confirmed on a 49-46 vote, with McSally voting in support of his confirmation — an unsurprising outcome, given that both McSally and Truncale have:
- Advocated gutting protections for pre-existing condition coverage, which could threaten health insurance coverage for 2.8 million Arizonans with pre-existing conditions;
- Opposed limits on money in politics; and,
- Attacked vital earned benefits like Medicare and Social Security.
“Sen. McSally’s support for Michael Truncale is no surprise, given that they both support gutting protections for 2.8 million Arizonans with pre-existing conditions and have backed cuts to earned benefits like Medicare,” said Brad Bainum, Arizona Democratic Party spokesperson for the 2020 Senate race. “McSally keeps showing us who she’s working for in Washington, and it’s her corporate special interests backers, not hardworking Arizonans.”
