Obamacare has hurt millions of American families. Insurance premiums have been sky rocketing and one of the things that President Trump ran on was repealing and replacing Obamacare. However, according to Nancy Pelosi, Americans now love Obamacare? What’s her proof? That senate Republicans like John McCain voted against repealing it.
“The American people have spoken. Think what you saw was just an outpouring of stories of how the Affordable Care Act affected their lives. Where do we go from here?” said Pelosi in an interview with Fox’s Chris Wallace.
“You say the American people have spoken, they put Republicans in charge of the House and Republicans in charge of the Senate, Republicans in the White House. You cannot argue that they spoke and Washington didn’t listen,” said Wallace correctly. However, according to Pelosi, the senate vote proves that the people of America changed their minds.
“I’m talking about since the election day, so what the repeal might be in they’ve rejected overwhelmingly. We will see what it means their life, and I think it’s important for us to recognize the facts that what the Republicans are putting forth put 17, 22, 23 million people off the rolls and diminish the benefits of increased the costs, undermined Medicare and really was not a good proposal,” said Pelosi.
“I think there is —Senator McConnell, one of his bills that he had, he has a profession that we can replace. It’s a provision to cover the cost-sharing that is — cost-sharing reduction to extend the reinsurance, which is very important. Best short-term stability, long term stability, and I fully support that and hope that he would advance that,” she said. Check out the video below.
