Rep. Elijah Cummings followed the money and explained why Republicans are being dishonest and not telling the truth about their health care bill during an interview on CNN.
The White House is trying to defend Paul Ryan’s Obamacare replacement bill, but they may be too late as the GOP opposition to the House bill has grown into an avalanche.
Opposition from conservative groups to the House Republican Obamacare replacement bill is loud and fierce, while in the Senate a top Republican is warning that the replacement bill does not have enough votes to pass. The bill is looking nearly dead less than 24 hours after being unveiled.
The House Republican Obamacare replacement plan has been leaked and it as bad as expected. The Republican plan would kill subsidies and Medicaid expansion. It would allow states to create high-risk pools with benefit caps and would cause millions of Americans to lose their health care. The Republican plan is a death sentence for millions of Americans who benefit from the ACA.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan made it clear during his CNN healthcare town hall that his plan to reduce healthcare costs involving moving cancer patients to high-risk pools that will be run by the states with benefits capped. In other words, cancer patients will be given less healthcare and lower odds of survival.
