Following last night’s vice presidential debate in Salt Lake City, Ohio Democratic Party Chair David Pepper released the following statement:

“Last night, Mike Pence failed to defend Donald Trump’s toxic health care agenda — because it’s indefensible. In the midst of a devastating and still-worsening pandemic, Trump is suing to strip health coverage away from hundreds of thousands of Ohioans and deny protections to millions more with pre-existing conditions like cancer, asthma and even COVID-19. You can’t spin that reality.

“Working families can’t afford four more years with a president hell-bent on undermining our health care. Ohioans need advocates in the White House, and we’re going to get them in Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”

Promise: “We’re going to approve and get something that is so much less expensive and so good. A great health care system, a system that you deserve. That’s what we’re going to be doing.” [Cleveland, Oct. 22, 2016]

Promise: “We’re attacking the virus from every angle. And through this aggressive strategy, we will win the war, and it will happen sooner than people think.” [Clyde, Aug. 6, 2020]
