FACT CHECKER CALLS OUT PETER ROSKAM FOR LYING ABOUT HIS RECORD ON PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS

(Downers Grove, IL) October 25, 2018 - Wanted to be sure you saw Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler spoke out last night and this morning about Peter Roskam’s lies in the debate about his record of protecting pre-existing conditions. In Glenn’s words, “if you voted for the AHCA, defend your decision, but do not try to hide behind our Pinocchios.” Peter Roskam voted to remove protections for pre-existing conditions, impose an age tax, and kick millions of Americans off coverage. It is high time he stop lying his constituents.
