"Families will go bankrupt. People will die," Senator Elizabeth "Tossingbull" Warren tweeted Thursday. If you like Warren's doctor you can keep her doctor. If you like her healthcare plan, you can keep her healthcare plan.
The only reason Democrats want to keep ObamaCare is to kiss Obama's ring. If it was such a great plan, how come Congress and the President aren't obligated to have its coverage? If it was so great, how come Obama had to lie about it and Jonathan Gruber said it depended on the "stupidity of the American voter?"
Granted, if the plan is going to cover preexisting conditions, it's going to have to cost more for insurance companies to cover you. But if there can be a government subsidy that can cover preexisting conditions and not cover illegal aliens, the plan will work.
House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) assured the public that people with preexisting conditions will not lose their coverage or have to pay more.
I'm not sure if I believe him. I think the only way to make that happen is a subsidy.
You don't buy health insurance on the way to the hospital.
"Whatever health care plan you have today, if you have a preexisting condition, you can never be denied coverage," Scalise said. "And you can never be charged a dime more, not any more than anybody else in that plan. That's maintained and cannot be waivered by a state."
No House Democrat supported the new measure, which President Trump supports.
Rep. David Cicilline (Duh-R.I.) argued in the House before the vote that "tens of thousands of Americans will die if this bill passes."
|"They're all gonna die, Kemosabe"|
Cicilline almost fell to the floor, suffering from the vapors, as Warren handed him an ancient Indian brew to bring him back to consciousness. When he opened his eyes, he looked at the members of the House and said, "That's a fact."
So that's the new Democratic talking point: pass it and an untold number of people will die.
This is why Democrats are losing elections.
But don't let me stop you.
