The title of tonight’s update is “The Democrats’ Obamacare Replacement Plan”. … Well, that didn’t take long, because they don’t have one. What do you call people who make a big mess and – not only do they NOT clean it up – they don’t even OFFER to clean it up. I don’t know about you, but I call that IRRESPONSIBLE. After all the misery they caused, and not even an apology for taking American healthcare off the rails.
Meanwhile, the train wreck continues. I sifted through last week’s news and pulled out the stories showing that Obamacare’s ‘Misery Index’ hasn’t gone down in the slightest.
Our friend Grace-Marie Turner of the Galen Institute wrote up some recent Congressional hearings on how people are being hurt by Obamacare. Businesses are being wiped out, young adults can’t get jobs, people have very little choice on the exchanges, and premiums have gone nutso. It’s a “middle-class nightmare” as one witness put it. Not only are middle-income people being squeezed, low-income Medicaid recipients are having trouble finding doctors. In all, Obamacare has killed 300,000 jobs, 10,200 companies, and $19 billion in wages. Then they have the nerve to complain about Donald Trump pulling the plug on Obamacare ads for the year. If Obamacare was so good, they wouldn’t need advertising in the first place.
Links in the wrap-up, as usual.
