Just when you think Democratic Congress Members can’t get anymore melodramatic, they do. Fear mongering is the best they have. House republicans hadn’t even had a chance to pat themselves on the back before democrats started their latest the sky is falling chant.
Quite frankly democrats have a lot of nerve complaining about the healthcare bill passed in the house. They refused to sit at the table in a good faith effort to fix the healthcare debacle they created. Instead they have chosen to derelict their duty.
More interested in causing chaos than the job their constituents hired them to do, democrats frighten the most vulnerable. Democratic Congress Members should be well aware that the AHCA will now be worked on in the Senate. Like all bills, it is very likely that it will undergo more changes there.
Obamacare is repealing itself. There is a big difference between having an insurance card and having coverage. Premiums, co-pays and deductibles have skyrocketed. Insurance providers have dropped out like flies. Employers can no longer afford to pay for quality plans for employees. The list goes on and on for the issues created with Obamacare.
Democrats better hope AHCA passes the Senate. Otherwise they will be holding the bag while Obamacare implodes all by itself. Republicans would be wise to let that happen. The problem with both scenarios is that the American People will lose.
It is in the best interest of this nation for Senate democrats, republicans, independents (democrats) Bernie and Angus to sit down together like grownups. The more voices in the discussion the better the end product will be.
No matter how good a healthcare plan is, it will not please everyone. But, two Parties’ input would be better than one’s. If Democrats don’t want to be part of the solution than they need to get out of the republicans way and let them do what they can.
Either way, democrats need to stop their crying and grow up. Who knows what the final healthcare plan will look like. What I do know is that people weren’t dying in the streets from lack of healthcare before Obamacare and they won’t be after. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying.
