CHARLESTON, WV — West Virginians are outraged after learning that Attorney General Pat Morrisey joined a federal lawsuit to allow insurance companies to deny coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. Today, Joe Manchin’s campaign launched an online petition to give the people of West Virginia the chance to speak out.
West Virginians can visit StopMorrisey.com to speak out and add their name to a petition to stop Pat Morrisey.
800,000 West Virginians have pre-existing conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, or heart disease, and Patrick Morrisey is siding with the big insurance companies to throw out protections for West Virginians who have pre-existing conditions.
“West Virginians need to sign this petition and make their voices heard,” said U.S. Senator Joe Manchin. “I don’t know how our Attorney General could be so reckless when he knows 800,000 West Virginians will be hurt if protections for pre-existing conditions will be taken away. It’s up to all West Virginians to speak up and tell Patrick Morrisey to stop attacking people with pre-existing conditions because any of us could be impacted by this.”
