As Obamacare Falls Apart, Dems Demand More Obamacare
“[Lezlie Walla] the 34-year-old single mother of two knew her son, Caleb, should go to the doctor. She also knew she couldn't afford it.This is crazy, she wanted to scream.She has insurance, but it comes with a $6,000 family deductible - $2,000 for each of them - that she must pay before her policy typically pays a dime. Last year, she was uninsured. This year feels exactly the same.”(“A Shift In Coverage Has Even The Insured Skipping Medical Care,” Houston Chronicle, 10/1/2016)
SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH McCONNELL (R-KY): “At a time when Obamacare is raising health costs dramatically, chasing competition out of the health industry, and collapsing in on itself, Democrats just rolled out a brand-new health-care idea to fix the problems that even they grudgingly admit are plaguing families. Their answer? More Obamacare.”(Sen. McConnell, Press Release)
President Obama, Senate Democrat Leaders, And Liberal Groups Call For Even More Government In ‘Obamacare 2.0’
“Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) ... called the public-option debate a ‘distraction.’ ‘We’ve had a whole lot of discussion about what’s going to happen to Obamacare but … we aren’t having discussions [about how we deliver higher-quality care at lower costs] because we keep discussing how we’re going to fund it,’ she said.” (“Democratic Liberals, Moderates Feud Over Public Option,” Politico, 9/22/2016)
FLASHBACK: Democrat Senators In 2009: ‘A Government Insurance Company … Is A Radical Departure’
Then-SEN. JOSEPH LIEBERMAN (ID-CT): “One last word on the public option -- I understand that some who have advocated say we need to have a government insurance company in the market to keep the insurance companies honest. This is a radical departure from the way we have responded to the market in America in the past.”(NBC’s “Meet The Press,” 11/22/2009)
Then-SEN. MARY LANDRIEU (D-LA):“Count Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) as a ‘no’ vote on the public insurance option. ‘I am not open to a public option, however I will remain open to a compromise - a full compromise,’ Landrieu told reporters Tuesday. ‘A public option is not something I support I don't think its the right way to go.’” (“Landrieu Nixes Public Option,” Politico, 6/9/2009) Tags:Obamacare, Falls Apart, Dems Demand More ObamacareTo share or post to your site, click on "Post Link".
