I was strongly against the bill when it first came out, I sided with Senator Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and the Freedom Caucus. I agreed with the labels “Obama Care Lite” and “Third Bucket is for Suckers”. But something happened yesterday during Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearings that swayed my opinion to the point I think Republicans need to support the President’s Health Care Bill. In this segment I explain why I changed my mind.
The American Health Care Plan to repeal and replace Obama Care should be done at one time. Senator Ted Cruz, in an interview on Face the Nation, discussing the three buckets of the Health Care Plan: 1) Pass the American Health Care Plan 2) Administrative 3) Legislative. Cruz said, the notion that you can’t pass everything at one time is fundamentally false. Cruz calls the Legislative bucket, the third bucket for suckers. Mitch McConnell thinks he can use Obama Care in one more election to get 60 Senate Republican votes.
