Ryan Berman, Republican State Representative Candidate of District 39, is supported by groups fighting to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This would put 1.2 million Michiganders, especially those with pre-existing conditions, at risk.
Berman is supported by the Michigan Freedom Fund, an organization that pushes extreme conservative policies and opposes government oversight. This organization has fought to repeal the ACA, without regard for individuals in Michigan they’d be putting in harm’s way.
Berman has also had a poor response to the COVID-19 pandemic, continuing to put the health of Michiganders at risk. He’s led the Unlock Michigan initiative, which has been a direct attack on Governor Whitmer’s executive orders to keep Michiganders safe. He’s also taken a stance against mask-wearing, and showed up to the Capitol without a mask, putting his colleagues at risk.
Overall, Ryan Berman’s politics put the health of Michiganders at risk. He’s supported by groups fighting to repeal the ACA, leaving over a million Michigan residents without health care coverage and directly putting those with pre-existing conditions at risk. Berman will also continue to undermine the Governor and health officials as they attempt to keep the health and safety of Michganders a priority during a global pandemic. His politics are dangerous for the health of Michiganders.
