This morning Trump praised the GOP’s Obamacare replacement plan:
President Trump made some brief remarks today in support of the Obamacare replacement bill released by House Republicans last night. He said that Obamacare is collapsing and that he’s “proud to support” this replacement, which he expects to be clearer and “more popular” with the American people. “It’s a very complicated process,” the president said, “but actually it’s very simple. It’s called good health care.”
Breitbart feels rather differently:
The Obamacare 2.0 bill pushed by some Republicans strips out even Obamacare’s weak protections preventing illegal aliens from signing up for health care meant for citizens. A draft of the bill, released by the House Committee on Ways and Means, cannot even include bare-bones provisions requiring officials to check an enrollee’s immigration status, the Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz warns, calling it a “gift to illegal aliens.”
It’s an insult to injury for Americans victimized by mass immigration policies and punishing healthcare regulations. Yet some Republicans seem eager to inflict more pain on the very voters who put them in power. Poll after poll shows Trump’s immigration policies prioritizing Americans, particularly struggling and vulnerable citizens, over foreigners are hugely popular with voters. Republicans in Congress ignore these voters and their pleas for affordable health care and immigration enforcement at their own peril.
