We know what they should do, but it’s something they hardly ever do because they don’t like to do it. They should fight back. They should say the CBO numbers are phoney and they should offer their own numbers on how many people will lose their health insurance if Obamacare is NOT repealed.
That number is easy, doesn’t even need any imaginary bean counting by the CBO. The number that will lose their health insurance if Obamacare is not repealed is EVERYBODY. Obamacare is in a death spiral. It’s going to repeal itself if Congress doesn’t hurry up and do it first.
Are You Really Worse Off If You “Lose” Your Insurance? No, the elixir of the free market will create wonderful new and innovative solutions, but we’ll never see any of them if Government continues to occupy the field. Read the whole thing.
Fact is, nobody needs to lose their health insurance. Repealing Obamacare doesn’t have to repeal medicaid. Most of those in the Obamacare exchanges are on Medicaid, which is not going to shut down just because Obamacare is repealed. The rest can simply buy insurance without having to go to an Obamacare exchange because those won’t exist anymore. They will probably be able to lower their insurance premiums if they are allowed to buy, and insurance companies are allowed to sell a policy that people can afford.
