QUICK CLIP: Cindy Hyde-Smith Admits She Knew She Voted To Gut Coverage for Preexisting Conditions

JACKSON, Miss.–In tonight’s debate, Cindy Hyde-Smith admitted that she knew she was voting for a bill that would gut coverage for preexisting conditions.

Moderator: Cindy, you said that you had not cast a single vote that would allow insurers to discriminate against Mississippians with preexisting conditions. But in October you voted against a resolution which would have prevented insurers from selling short term “junk” plans that can do just that. Did you not know what you were voting for or did you lie?

Hyde-Smith: Absolutely, I knew what I was voting for.
