The White House responded by lying about Obamacare, disputing the CBO’s numbers, and most interestingly asking for Democrats to help them take health care away from 24 million people.

HHS Secretary Tom Price told reporters, “The bill that the CBO looked at was simply the bill that’ pending before Congress. It didn’t look at the regulatory reforms we’re going to put into place. It didn’t look at the state innovation grants. It didn’t look at the flexibility that we’re going to allow the states because that’s what the states are demanding and asking for so that they can take care of their most vulnerable populations and didn’t look at all of the pieces of legislation that are also pending out there that we call on friends on other side of the aisle to help us reform the insurance markets so that we can provide greater choices and greater competition.”

Notice what Sec. Price was asking Democrats to do. Price doesn’t want to hear Democratic ideas. The White House is begging Democrats to vote for Republican legislation that will take health care away from 24 million people.

Price’s remarks were a pathetic attempt to get Democrats to take the blame for more than 20 million people losing their health care.

The odds of this happening are exactly zero. Republicans opened up this can of worms with years of promises to repeal Obamacare.

They own this, and Democrats will not be riding to the rescue to bail them out.
