NATIONAL PROPONENT FOR DISMANTLING AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE TRAVELS TO LONG ISLAND TO  FUNDRAISE FOR ANDREW GARBARINO 

 

ISLIP, NY— Today, Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy will travel to Long Island to personally fundraise for Congressional candidate Andrew Garbarino. Leader Kevin McCarthy is known as the architect of the GOP's plan to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, which would cause thousands of Long Islanders to lose their health care. National Republicans have made their disregard for hard-working Americans clear through their lawsuit to dismantle the ACA with no alternative plan in place.

 

"Stripping health care from thousands of Long Islanders during a global pandemic is not only ill-advised, it is downright dangerous. Long Islanders cannot afford to have a representative who votes against fortifying protections for people with pre-existing conditions and cozies up to the corporations that are driving up the cost of prescription drugs and insurance premiums," said Remmington F. Belford, Communications Director for the Jackie Gordon for Congress campaign. 

 

Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy was also an instrumental figure in the passage of the 2017 GOP tax bill that gave massive tax breaks to big corporations, added trillions to the national debt, put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block, and capped state and local tax deductions, ushering in higher taxes for Long Island families. Worse, Republican leadership admitted the bill was intended to undermine the Affordable Care Act. 

 

"Andrew Garbarino embracing  Kevin McCarthy and accepting his help in light of his support of the SALT cap that is plaguing New Yorkers is exactly why — among many other reasons — we must elect Jackie Gordon to represent Long Island's South Shore in Washington," said Remmington F. Belford, Communications Director for the Jackie Gordon for Congress campaign. 

 

Serving as an Assemblyman in Albany, Andrew Garbarino: 

 

 

Belford continued, “Garbarino’s voting record in Albany is indicative of how he will vote in Washington. Time and time again, he has proved that he will not put the needs of working families first. Long Islanders deserve better than Andrew Garbarino, who would simply be a rubber stamp for the Republican leadership in Congress.”
