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

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.

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

Friday on CNN’s “Inside Politics,” anchor John King described Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” as “state TV” for show co-host Ainsley Earhardt saying President Donald Trump’s tweet was “smart.” King played a clip of the interview that centered on Trump’s initial “tape” tweet and his tweet yesterday saying he did not tape his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey.
