Patrick Morrisey on Health Care
Joe Manchin (D): Needs improvement, but supports its preventive care, protections for pre-existing conditions, costs of prescription drugs, & support to fight opioid epidemic. Unacceptable to go back to when 250,000 West Virginians went without healthcare.
Patrick Morrisey (R): Repeal. Joined lawsuit that would end coverage of preexisting conditions. ACA has "utterly failed our country & West Virginia," causing higher insurance premiums, & leading businesses to drop health care coverage altogether.
Q: Should the Federal government support miners' pensions & health care when companies go bankrupt?
Joe Manchin (D): Yes. Spearheaded bill to fund health care benefits & pensions for union miners.
Patrick Morrisey (R): No statement found.
We asked, "From 2010-12 were you lobbying on behalf of pharmaceutical distributors?"
"Well I was a private lawyer and we did do some lobbying work," Morrisey explained.
As a lobbyist, Morrisey was paid $250,000 to represent a pharmaceutical trade group funded by some of the same distributors WV is now suing. He also took more than $8,000 in political contributions from Cardinal Health, a defendant in one of the state's lawsuits. The WV bar was concerned enough about a potential conflict to launch an investigation. Morrisey says he is now "permanently screened" from the case. That didn't end the questions. Morrisey's wife is a lobbyist. One of her biggest clients? Cardinal Health.
As a lawyer in private practice, Patrick Morrisey assisted the 26-states in their lawsuit to overturn the individual mandate and helped the U.S. House of Representatives in their efforts to replace the law. As Attorney General, Patrick Morrisey will join the multi-state lawsuit against the law and ensure that our state's interests are protected.
