The state-by-state guidance and rules come after Congress and the Trump administration this spring assured Americans that coronavirus testing and any necessary trips to doctors and hospitals would be free. But lawmakers didn’t limit charges if the testing is done out of network — or prohibit labs or hospitals from billing patients if insurers refuse to pay their posted charges.

Kelly Loeffler’s Coronavirus Cashout 

Since this global pandemic has escalated, our Senator Kelly Loeffler has been under constant national scrutiny for cashing out and covering up for Donald Trump. 

After closed-door Senate briefings on COVID-19, Loeffler played the stock market just before it crashed. Meanwhile, she made numerous public statements on the strength of the American economy and applauded Donald Trump’s handling of this pandemic. 

After cashing out, Loeffler wrote a $5 MILLION CHECK to her own campaign. As the Democratic frontrunner in the race to take Loeffler’s Senate seat, I’m asking you to contribute just $5 to my campaign to counter Loeffler’s $5 million. 

I have vowed not to accept a dime of corporate PAC money and to always protect the best interests of Georgians as your Senator. Will you chip in to fuel my campaign to victory so we can kick Loeffler out of our government in 2020? https://www.facebook.com/111702860231554/posts/351480829587088/?vh=e&d=n
