In 2010, when President Obama and fellow Democrats sold Obamacare to Americans as the healthcare initiative that would all-but bring the second coming of Jesus Crist, the bulk of the population seemed to buy into the notion that they would now have “affordable” healthcare coverage.The blinders have now come off, and Obamacare is not as affordable as Obama and others said it would be.
During their last senatorial debate, Senator Marco Rubio (R) and Rep. Patrick Murphy were asked to talk about the massive healthcare premiums that will be coming down in 2017.
Both men kept to their past and present talking points on the issue.
Murphy, like most Democrats who support Obamacare, is now running for political cover and looking for help from Republicans to fix the failing healthcare law.
Rubio, who has lead the effort in the U.S. Senate to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, laid out his case again, and asked Murphy to answer why he thought every day Americans should bailout health insurance companies.
There’s no question that the Affordable Care Act was a huge step forward, but the focus now has to be getting it right, running across the isle to ensure we are fixing it.”-Rep. Patrick Murphy (D)
Why should we be using taxpayer money to bail out private insurance companies who are making millions of dollars in profits? Why should you be bailing out private insurance companies? I want congressman Murphy to answer, why is that the right thing for our country? Why should taxpayers be bailing out these companies? What do we want to do instead of obamacare?- Sen.Marco Rubio (R)
