Dana Loesch: Paul Ryan Obamacare Plan A "Middle Finger" To American People, Trump


Radio talk show host and conservative commenter Dana Loesch said the Paul Ryan Obamacare replacement bill is an insult to the American people and to the Trump administration. From her interview Friday morning with Shannon Bream on the FOX News Channel"

DANA LOESCH: I think there's a lot of danger there, Shannon. I want to reiterate what Senator Paul said, but I want to take it a step further. I think it's an insult. It's an insult to the American people and it's an insult to the Trump administration for Republicans, Congressional Republicans to deliver this bill to his desk.

They are the ones who are endangering this new administration and I can't bold, italicized, underline that anymore.

In 2015, Jim Jordan had a fantastic bill that went way further than anything that this bill is doing and it actually lowered prices instead of increasing prices, which is what this 'Obamacare 2.0' bill does and I don't know why, for the life of me, they will not go back to that, because it was already on the floor.

This is a swamp monster. If people are going to talk about draining the swamp, this is literally the creature from the black lagoon, this Obamacare 2.0 bill. The exact Obamacare regulatory structure is still in place, the penalty that must be paid to insurance companies is there, and for all of the awful things were in Obamacare, one at least wise thing Democrats did was include some cost controls, albeit nobody liked the method in which they did it. But now in this Obamacare 2.0 bill, Republicans did away with all of that. So it could actually end up costing exponentially more than what the original Obamacare bill did.

This isn't about President Trump. I think that there's a lot of great things that he's done, just in his first month in office. But for Republicans to deliver something like this to his desk, I'll just say it, it's a giant middle finger to America, it's a giant middle finger to the Trump administration, and we did not protest in the street for eight years to get Obamacare lite. And they better think long and hard before they try to walk something like this up to the Resolute Desk.
