West Virginia Attorney General issued the following announcement on July 9.
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey continued his fight Tuesday for more affordable health care options that benefit more people, including those with preexisting conditions.
The Attorney General, with a coalition of 18 states, seeks to expand health care options for states and consumers.
“Even some of Obamacare’s staunchest supporters recognize its epic failure to bring down the cost of health care, including in West Virginia, where premiums have skyrocketed by more than 225 percent since 2013.
“Our lawsuit seeks to protect thousands of working class West Virginians – with and without preexisting conditions – who are suffering financial hardships because of Obamacare, since without action, household budgets cannot continue to sustain such pressure.
“Sadly, Obamacare loyalists stick their head in the sand, ignore its skyrocketing premiums and hope that by repeating the same lie long enough, the general public will fall in line with Washington controlling yet another aspect of its life.
“Don’t fall for the left’s con job. Our detractors use nakedly partisan attacks to hide their embrace of skyrocketing premiums for those who can least afford it, while forcing those same taxpayers to foot the bill for luxury health care coverage for members of Congress and their staff – insurance far superior to that of typical West Virginians.
“We want to save private, affordable health insurance, and Obamacare makes that impossible. We must do something, because if we do nothing our system will collapse and open the door to a socialist platform that doubles your taxes and eliminates private health plans.
“Working class West Virginians deserve much better, and, yes, that includes those with preexisting health conditions. Everyone should have access to affordable health insurance.
“It’s time for people to stop spewing scare tactics and focus on a solution. I stand ready to work with state legislators to fix a number of West Virginia’s health care problems. It is time for action.”
