SEAN CASTEN STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP SCOTUS NOMINEE JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH

“The nomination of Brett Kavanaugh is very troubling for those of us who support a woman’s right to choose. We must watch very closely the upcoming hearings to determine if he/she would carry out the extreme Trump-Roskam agenda of reversing Roe v. Wade and, as Roskam has supported, banning abortions even for victims of rape. We must also be concerned that Judge Kavanaugh would strike down the Affordable Care Act, which Peter Roskam voted in Congress to do 60 times.”

SEAN CASTEN COMMITS TO PROTECTING WOMEN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE

“I am deeply concerned about U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh particularly when it comes to women’s health, contraception and reproductive rights. As a Member of Congress, I would be vigilant in defending a woman’s right to make personal, private medical decisions, including abortion, without the interference of politicians like Peter Roskam and Donald Trump.” said Casten.

CASTEN BLASTS TRUMP, ROSKAM FOR ONGOING ATTEMPTS TO SABOTAGE AMERICANS HEALTH CARE COVERAGE

“President Trump's defunding of the Affordable Care Act will condemn thousands here in Illinois to massive premium increases or lose their health care coverage entirely.” Casten said. “Peter Roskam voted repeatedly to kill the Affordable Care Act, and now with Trump’s callous action Peter Roskam gets his wish. It’s a heartless and vindictive act, especially since neither the President nor Peter Roskam have any viable alternative to helping people afford health care coverage.”

ANOTHER MISLEADING AD ABOUT PETER ROSKAM FROM SPECIAL-INTEREST GROUP

“Once again, Peter Roskam’s special-interest friends in Washington are trying to persuade voters that he’s something that he’s not,” said Casten. “Peter Roskam does not deserve an award for his work to privatize and restrict access to Medicare. Peter Roskam has repeatedly voted to end Medicare as we know it, as well as to keep prescription drugs expensive for seniors by stopping Medicare from getting a better deal from drug companies.”

Outside Spending And ‘Alternative Fact’ Campaign Begins For Peter Roskam

“Donald Trump has set the new standard for taking credit for things he hasn’t done, and this new ad borrows from Trump’s playbook by thanking Peter Roskam for doing the exact opposite of what he actually did,” said Casten. “This ad heralds Peter Roskam for his work on taxes and health care, but in reality, Peter Roskam cut taxes for big corporations by raising taxes and premiums on the middle class, and voted to take away health care for millions of Americans - 34,000 of his own constituents.”
