Dissension in the ranks grows on GOP health care bill

Glenn Beck

On "Think Tank," Glenn Beck and the gang discussed the latest on the House Republican health care plan, covering the various dissensions in the ranks within the GOP. Beck started the discussion by addressing the pre-existing condition requirement and how unsustainable it would be if  applied to the auto insurance industry, allowing individuals to purchase insurance after getting into an accident.

Leon Wolf, managing editor of TheBlaze, pointed out that more moderate Republicans are beginning to oppose the plan over concerns that people will lose their coverage. It was noted that the Congressional Budget Office estimate of 14 to 24 million people "losing" coverage includes individuals who might choose to not purchase health insurance if the insurance mandate is repealed.

On the other end of the spectrum, GOP Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.), Mike Lee (Utah) and Ted Cruz (Texas) are also opposing the plan in favor of bills Republicans have offered in years past, which include a full repeal of Obamacare.
