CNN: Obamacare repeal debate on Graham-Cassidy, the day before it dies
On CNN, JakeTapper and Dana Bash hosted a debate on Obamacare repeal or replacement with Amy Klobuchar, Lindsey Graham, Bill Cassidy, and Bernie Sanders on CNN Monday night, Sept. 25, at 9 PM
Graham insisted that the block-grant idea behind the repeal was better because the people in the states could elect officials who would represent their interests. Obviously low income people in red states won’t buy this.
There was some discussion of how Britain, Canadian, French and Swiss healthcare systems work. Obamacare was compared to the Swiss system, except that in Switzerland all policies are individual or family, none come from employers.
The Senate gave up on the vote Tuesday as it did not have enough votes, after Susan Collins insisted on remaining a No.
