Ann Coulter: GOP Health Care Bill a ‘Total Disaster,’ ‘Obamacare Lite’

United States News - Fri, 06/23/2017 - 17:53

Friday on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Company,” conservative columnist Ann Coulter said the Senate Republicans’ health care bill was a “total disaster” because it is “Obamacare-lite.” Coulter called for a “one-sentence law saying there shall be a free market in health insurance.” “[U]nder the Republicans’ health care bill, guess who’s still paying for transgender operations? Guess who still can’t go to Memorial Sloan Kettering? Guess who will still be paying 700 dollars a month for heath insurance? No, I don’t want gambling addiction therapy. I don’t want psychological counseling. I want insurance if I have a broken bone or cancer. That is illegal to sell in this country.” “This is going to ruin Republicans if this passes because it’s Obamacare lite,” she added.”Now Republican will get blamed for it. Let it fall. I would rather have nothing than have Republicans take responsibility for something that is just as bad as Obamacare except all your taxes get cut.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Fifth GOP Senator Opposes New Senate Leadership Health Care Bill

Moderate Sen. Dean Heller became the fifth Republican to oppose the newly released Senate Republican leadership’s Obamacare reform bill on Friday. “In this form, I will not support it,” Heller announced at an afternoon press conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, reported CNBC. As he stood beside Gov. Brian Sandoval, he pinned his lack of support for the bill to changes that would be made to the Medicaid program, according to the Wall Street Journal. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unveiled the closely guarded Senate Republican leadership’s version of healthcare reform on Thursday. The bill comes despite House passage of it’s own Obamacare replacement bill, the American Health Care Act (ACHA). Senate leadership has faced criticism from other Senate Republicans for not involving them in the process of drafting the bill. Republican Sens. Rand Paul (KY), Ted Cruz (TX), Mike Lee (UT) and Ron Johnson (WI) announced opposition to the bill shortly after the bill’s release. “I think the bill looks too much like Obamacare,” Paul told Breitbart News. “It really doesn’t look like a repeal bill. It looks like we’re keeping Obamacare, it keeps probably 100 percent of the Obamacare subsidies. In fact, we have estimated that it may have more
