PA Sen. Dan Laughlin: Bad for your Health

Pennsylvania State Sen. Dan Laughlin (SD-49) hasn’t been in office long, but that hasn’t stopped him from championing disastrous health care policies that hurt Pennsylvanians.

Here’s how

  • Last year, Sen. Laughlin co-sponsored a bill to let employers offer health care plans that don’t cover the essentials, like maternity care and prescription drugs. [SB 993
  • Most Medicaid recipients are employed, but Sen. Laughlin still voted to add unnecessary work requirements that increase costs and jeopardize coverage for those who lost their jobs. [HB 59] [HB 2138]
  • We’re still in a pandemic, but Sen. Laughlin voted to end the emergency declaration in June, even as COVID-19 cases and deaths rose in Erie County. [HR 836]
