Lindsey Graham: If the GOP wins in 2020, ‘I can promise you’ we will repeal your health care

No surprise, but it’s official now: The Republican Party is running on repealing the health care of millions of Americans in 2020. The Hill reports, “’If we can get the House back and keep our majority in the Senate, and President Trump wins reelection, I can promise you not only are we going to repeal ObamaCare, we’re going to do it in a smart way where South Carolina will be the biggest winner,’ [Sen. Lindsey] Graham said in an interview with a South Carolina radio station.”

And what is the Graham’s “smart way”? Well, of course it’s not very smart at all. As a matter of fact, it’s very dangerous for millions of Americans with existing health care conditions.

Republicans really want guaranteed coverage for pre-existing health conditions to go away. They start by making the protection optional, which would mean millions would be denied health care coverage. The Hill reports,

Graham’s repeal bill, introduced in 2017, would eliminate major sections of ObamaCare, including subsidies that help people buy insurance and the Medicaid expansion that covers low-income adults in 36 states and Washington, D.C.

The bill would essentially shift money from states like California that expanded Medicaid to states that didn’t, like South Carolina. Such a move could force some states to cut health care services and reduce eligibility.

[…]

Graham on Tuesday touted his bill, which would allow states to opt out of consumer protections, like those that prevent insurers from charging people with pre-existing conditions more for coverage. [Emphasis added.]

There you have it. It’s right here for all to see.

Now we must all make sure to remind voters, over and over, that the centerpiece of the Republican campaign for the House, Senate, and presidency is to finally succeed in repealing their health care. Their only plan is to satisfy the whims of one man over the well-being of an entire country.

Do you want access to health care and real plans to address the gaps in our health care system? It’s simple. Vote for a Democrat in 2020 to save your health care.

Maybe we will watch you really go down the drain, and you won’t have any choice but to beg for Obama Care. Besides Lindsey, you only follow Trump, because you are a lazy worthless POS who doesn’t do enough to get in the news, so you have no choice but to show your ignorance as Trump does.
