Speaking to radio host John Castimatidis on AM 970 in New York, McCaughey said, “If he can’t do his job as Speaker, to hold these Republicans together and get a repeal and replace bill through, somebody else should be Speaker.”
Betsy McCaughey, the former lieutenant governor of New York, said that “Obamacare is in a death spiral,” and accused Speaker Ryan of pushing for “Obamacare-lite.”
McCaughey is not the first Republican to oppose the Ryan plan to replace Obamacare. House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) said that the Ryan plan’s refundable tax credits could amount to a new “entitlement program.” Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) has said that taxing expensive employer-sponsored health insurance plans creates a new “Cadillac tax.”
I would like to know how much money has been confiscated from the working poor by stealing income tax refunds
We need to Repeal the ACA... we don't need to replace it.
Congress can provide legal incentives and protections to consumers wanting to purchase private insurance... across stateliness and with provisions to waive pre-existing conditions... for those forced off a previous insurance program. Congress can create tax incentives (employer and individual incentives) to purchase or offer employees health care insurance. They can create tax regulations that reward individuals for using medical savings accounts... They can pass TORT reform laws and create other incentives to promote and make private health insurance the go to method to pay for health care.
What Congress MUST NOT DO is REPLACE THE ACA with another government program ... no matter how innocuous or temporary they claim it will be. The poor and indigent already have medical coverage thru Medicare and Medicaid.
Get the BUM out! Paul Ryan is not looking out for the best interests for ALL AMERICANS! No more entitlements!
Betsy McCaughey is 100% correct!
I wanted Ryan OUT from the beginning.....we know he's a RINO and not to be trusted.
"Lead, Follow, or Get The Hell Out of the Way", either pull up your pants, and act like a man, and a Leader, or move on. Tonight, with the Speech before Congress will be a test of testicular fortitude, will he immediately throw out, using his Power, as Speaker, those who would disrupt, or will he fold like a cheap suit. Sorry, but I have little confidence, wouldn't trust him with my Cat.
Betsy is the BEST. I agree. Either Obamacare is formally repealed or Ryan is fired.
Republicans voted to abolish Obamacare many times when they knew obummer wouldn't sign the law. Now that we have our great leader, Donald J. Trump, who would sign the law in a heartbeat the rinos are not passing the same laws they had passed many times. There is only one solution. Trump needs to take charge, show himself as the supreme leader, take total control of Congress (and the judiciary) to make America great again. He needs to stop any dissent and opposition coming from either corner, and also coming from lamestream media.
It's not up to President Trump to just take charge,but it is up to us the American people to push Congress into doing it.
Paul Ryan stated they have been working 8 years on this. Really then where the hell is the final product and get it out there now. If not, Ryan needs to fired and now.
Did you notice that all of the healthcare bills, Congress don't have to live on. That is because it screw the working class over.
