Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) joined Dana Loesch on “Dana” tonight to discuss health care reform: past, present, and what the future may bring.
Massie criticized the different elements in last week’s Republican health care bill:
“This bill is three bills inside of one: it was a ‘repeal’ bill, it was a ‘replace’ bill, and it was a Medicaid reform bill,” Massie said, suggesting that if they would split the bills apart and hold separate votes, that a “repeal” bill and a Medicaid reform bill could pass, leaving only a replacement bill to be ironed out.
They went on to discuss the dismal poll numbers for the health care bill, only reaching 17% approval at its height, which they juxtaposed with the repeal of Obamacare polling at higher than 50%.
“That tells you that the American people have figured out this is not the repeal bill that we were campaigning on,” Massie stated.
