Costello Joins Opposition to MacArthur Amendment

Ryan CostelloCongressman Ryan Costello (R-Chester) announced today that he will not be supporting the MacArthur amendment.  The amendment is part of an effort by Congressional Republicans to revive the American Health Care Act.  

“Protections for those with pre-existing conditions without contingency and affordable access to coverage for every American remain my priorities for advancing healthcare reform, and this bill does not satisfy those benchmarks for me,” Costello said in a statement.  

According to some, the amendment would allow states to apply to become exempt themselves from requiring insurers to insure those with pre-existing conditions.  

Costello is one of four Republicans being targeted by national Democrats in 2018, and is the DCCC is currently running digital ads against him about the MacArthur amendment.

  1. MacArthur Amendment is melting in the dark
    All the sweet green money flowing down
    Someone left Obamacare in the rain
    I don’t think that I can take it
    ‘Cause it took so long to legislate it
    And I’ll never have that majority again
    Oh no!

  2. Another pansy who thinks we should give a damn about some sick people. If they’d a had guns, they coulda stopped the bugs that infected them to make them sick.

  3. I think the sentence “Costello is one of four Republicans being targeted by national Democrats in 2018” is incorrect. More accurately, “Pennsylvania Republicans” is the correct phrase. Whether or not you are a Republican or Democrat, it’s just a more accurate depiction of what they’ve stated.
