Sen. James Lankford backed Obamacare repeal bill, including those that gutted protections for pre-existing conditions.

Oklahoma Senator James Lankford told a constituent with brain cancer that he and his fellow Republicans will protect his access to health insurance — including protections for pre-existing conditions and subsidies to ensure the coverage is affordable.

But Lankford has backed every Obamacare repeal bill, according to Now This, including the recent Graham-Cassidy bill, which gutted protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions.
