Republicans have grown used to the common Democrat talking points that smear us all with the same lies – they don’t care about people.
Where does this lie come from? Our desire to not have our money stolen by the government to pay for the Democrats’ socialist fantasies. Whether it’s about funding for labor programs, education, entitlements, or any of the various programs that welfare-staters hold dear… Democrats believe they have a right to our money, and we believe that we should get to keep the wealth we work so hard to build.
It’s the same old lie that Democrats are now marching back out as they attempt to stop the GOP from repealing Obamacare. However, conservatives like House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will not allow Democrats to get away with the demagoguery and they have begun to fight back against the Democrats tired narrative.
McCarthy told CNN’s Dana Bash that the Democrats should stop lying to voters about what Republicans were doing with Obamacare. No one was going to take away people’s healthcare, and the GOP is going to continue protecting people with pre-existing conditions.
We’re not taking a benefit away – nobody on Medicaid is going to be taken away. What you’re going to find here – look at, look at the reports yesterday: 94 counties out of 99 in Iowa will not have health care. You have Aetna pulling out of Virginia yesterday as well. One-third of the entire country of counties only have one provider, and next year they won’t have any. So, if we do nothing, we’re going to hear a very loud crowd that people are not having health care. We cannot ignore this problem. They’ve got to stop playing politics with this. We can solve this problem, and this is the first start of making that happen today…
We protect pre-existing conditions. Yes, we really do. Show me, one point. We have guaranteed issue in here. We just added the Upton amendment, so any state, the only state that took a waiver and didn’t have health care coverage for 63 days, this actually buys down the premium. So, yes, we protect everyone. So what do you say to those 94 counties that don’t have health care? They don’t have health care, they don’t have pre-existing conditions – we’re actually solving a problem. The difference here is, we have Obamacare today, we know the failures when it comes to the exchanges, we know the Medicaid that is crowding people out. This is actually solving the problem.
