Republicans Making America A Laughing Stock – ‘Wha!? GOP Now Claims Obamacare Doesn’t Really Affect THAT Many People’

While the rest of the industrialized world has socialized medicine, our attempt to get there was met with Republican fear mongering :

“Obamacare is a malignant tumor that feeds and metastasizes on American liberty,” Rep. Steve King (R-IA) once said of the law’.

“Obamacare is doing tremendous damage across America, and in Utah in particular,” Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) said a year ago.

‘Then-Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) gravely pronounced: “This ruling erodes the freedom of every American, opening the door for the federal government to legislate, regulate, and mandate nearly every aspect of our daily lives under the guise of its taxing power.”

“If we don’t repeal and replace Obamacare, we will destroy health care in America,” Donald Trump warned a week before the election’.

Wow!!

But today?

“It’s a relatively small number of people who really are involved here,” Hatch told reporters earlier this month when he was being pressed for specifics about the GOP plan to repeal and maybe eventually replace Obamacare’.

One thought on “Republicans Making America A Laughing Stock – ‘Wha!? GOP Now Claims Obamacare Doesn’t Really Affect THAT Many People’

  1. Uh, no. Certain features of Obamacare affect every insured American, even with employer insurance – guaranteed coverage and renewal, non-college adult children can remain on parents plan until age 26, no lifetime limits, limits on profit margins of insurers selling policies, preventive care mandates, e.g.

    The majority of the naysayers do not have a good understanding of what it does and never have. It is imperfect and complex, but it is working. But, it could work better. My Big Issue post today is on “Harnessing Healthcare Insurance,” and advocates keeping and improving the law.
