Brett Kavanaugh Dodges Pre-Existing Conditions In Health Care Question

President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh avoided answering a question about upholding the pre-existing conditions part of Obamacare.

Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island asked Kavanaugh:

In my office, you told me that you could provide no assurance to me that you would uphold a statute requiring insurance companies to provide coverage for pre-existing medical conditions. Is that still true here in public?

Kavanaugh tried to filibuster the question with a long speech as he has done several times during the hearing, but Whitehouse interrupted him:

We’ve talked a lot about that… Is it still true today that you can give no assurance that you would uphold.

Kavanaugh replied: “Judges like to explain their decisions.”

Whitehouse asked his question again:

Yep. But I get to ask the questions. Usually you get to ask the questions because you’re the appellate judge. But today for half an hour, I get to. Is it still true that you can give no assurance that you would uphold a statute insurance companies to cover pre-existing medical conditions.

Kavanaugh attempted to dodge the question again with a long speech, and Whitehouse replied: “Got it. Everyone else does it so your answer is still ‘no.'”
