Senator Elizabeth Warren lambasted Republicans for focusing on repealing Obamacare with no plan to replace it.

 

“For eight years, Republicans have complained about health care in America,” Warren opened. “They have blamed everything in the world on President Obama. They’ve hung out on the sidelines, name-calling, making doomsday predictions, and cheering.”

 

“What’s the first thing on the Republican agenda now that they are in control?” Warren asked.

 

“The first thing: massively raise the costs of health insurance for everyone who has it. The first thing: create chaos for hospitals, clinics, and insurance. The first thing: abandon the people they were elected to represent. The first thing: repeal and run away,” she warned.

 

Just two weeks before Donald Trump’s inauguration, Mike Pence rallied Republican members of Congress to at least look like they are planning an alternative to Obamacare, which they are intent on repealing.

 

“And they are shocked—shocked—to discover that guaranteeing Americans access to health care is a complex business and they don’t have any good ideas,” Warren added.”

 

Some 20 million Americans will lose their health care if Obamacare is repealed. It took two years to hammer out the details of Obamacare yet Trump wants a replacement plan immediately.
