Did Obamacare help Americans, or hurt them? The health care debate really comes down to one simple question, Glenn Beck said on Tuesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
“Ask yourself this question: Are there more people hurting and struggling today than there were six years ago when this passed?” he said.
Since the Affordable Care Act became law, health care costs have been spiking and employers have been laying off workers. Senators like Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.V.) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio) who voted for the 2015 bill repealing Obamacare should be held accountable for the sake of the Americans who have been hurting, Glenn asserted.
After the disintegration of the GOP Senate’s health care bill on Monday, Republicans are looking to pass a repeal of Obamacare that the House passed in 2015.
Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) said Monday night that they would oppose the Senate bill, essentially killing it without enough Republican votes for the bill to pass. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released a statement saying that without the necessary votes to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Republicans should look to repeal it with a two-year staggered timeline that would give people time to transition to new health care plans.
McConnell said in the statement that “the Senate will vote to take up the House bill with the first amendment in order being what a majority of the Senate has already supported in 2015 and that was vetoed by then-President Obama: a repeal of Obamacare with a two-year delay to provide for a stable transition period to a patient-centered health care system that gives Americans access to quality, affordable care.”
