The mistake Republicans have made with health care?

It’s not just a policy mistake. The political operative in me knows that the thing Republicans should have done was let Obamacare die, because it could not sustain itself. But that would have forced people into health care plans they could not use. Not too mention that there are states right now with only one insurance company.

Now the Republicans have put into the heads of the American populace that they control health care. The average person thinks the GOP now has a new health care law in place.

It was Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio who removed the hook that the insurance companies had into us to force you to pay for their losses. They didn’t have to be part of this exchange scam. But now they are.

And now the architect of Obamacare is blaming Trump and the Republicans for a law that he wrote. The Republicans have now taken ownership of all this.

Obamacare is broken and it will always be broken. And there is nothing in Ryancare that stops the bleeding. It has already destroyed choice.

As always, please listen to the full audio clip for complete context.
