OVERVIEW
Alek Skarlatos would gut important health care protections for Oregon families.

SUMMARY
All voters, and especially younger Democrats and Independents in the Eugene media market, need to know that Alek Skarlatos’s views on health care are extreme and would hurt Oregon families:

  • Skarlatos would be a rubber stamp for Trump’s extreme health care agenda that wants to take away health care from Oregonians with pre-existing conditions while he ignores the advice of medical experts, refuses to wear a mask, and has failed to lead the national fight against COVID-19.

  • Skarlatos would be another extreme vote to allow wealthy insurance companies to kick Oregonians off their health coverage if they have a pre-existing condition. And Skarlatos supports cutting Medicare to further pad insurance company profits.

  • Skarlatos says he’d vote to defund Planned Parenthood, despite the critical health care they provide, including birth control and cancer screenings. And he is backed by extremists who support taking away women’s reproductive freedom, opposing a woman’s right to abortion even in cases of rape or incest.
