Progress Michigan Statement on Upton Flip-Flop on Trumpcare Bill
Upton switches position, caves to pressure from Trump
LANSING — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding Congressman Fred Upton’s flip-flop on the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
“Fred Upton has shown his true colors today by turning his back on the people of Michigan and those around the country who suffer with pre-existing conditions,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “For years, Upton has presented himself as a moderate who seeks solutions, but today he has shown himself to be another out-of-touch Republican who would rather toe the party line than seek real solutions to improve healthcare for Americans.”
