Mitch McConnell On Health Insurance

McConnel on health insurance: My case rests

By Art Stevens

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, when asked in an interview today on the Fox Network. “What happens after repeal of ObamaCare?) What would his party do about the 30 million uninsured Americans?”

McConnell: “That is not the issue. The question is: how can you go step by step to improve the health care system. It is already the finest Health Care System in the world.”

Moderator “Then you don’t believe that 30 million people are an issue?”

McConnell: “Let me tell you what we’re not going to do. We are not going to turn the American Health Care System into a Western European System.”

Moderator: “We get it. We know what you are not going to do. We know what Republicans are against. But what are you for? After repeal, what are we going to replace it with?

Art: He was asked TWICE about the 30 million people not covered now. It is not only McConnell that doesn’t answer that question. I’ve heard it asked of many, many Republicans. I have yet to get an answer. The only answers they all seem to agree on is: Repeal ObamaCare, and get rid of Obama. He states that our Health Care System is the finest in the world. I happen to agree with him. Does he now want to talk about ACCESS to the finest system in the world? The feeling seems to be: Hey, it’s only 30 million people. Who cares? WE’VE GOT OURS!

    The thing that we don’t hear from the Republican party is any solutions. The best Heath care in the world doesn’t do us much good if you can’t get to it. At least with the “Afffotdable Care Act” it has demanded a real dialogue.

    This Senator needs to retire. He is out of touch with America. Kentucky needs to own up and recall this man.
