Mark Meadows Stands Tall Against Disastrous Obamacare Lite…

Excerpt From: The Hill. Written By: Rick Manning.

Remember the good old days when Republicans were against the nationalization of 1/6 of the nation’s economy through ObamaCare?

Fortunately, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and many others in the GOP conference do, as they seek to hold Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to the rhetorical standard that so many in House leadership raised for the past six years.

As the “RyanCare” battle rages in House of Representatives, many are questioning why so many conservatives find the Speaker’s approach noxious.

Fortunately, the Texas Public Policy Forum has listed 10 reasons why the Speaker’s healthcare bill falls short — not just when it comes to repealing ObamaCare, but its failure to refocus our nation’s healthcare system toward patient care and away from worrying about insurance coverage.

The first two reasons are quoted below:

1. Doesn’t Improve Care. Obama[C]are expanded the federal bureaucracy at the expense of quality care. Tax dollars were taken from providers and used to pay administrators, consultants, lobbyists, insurers, and regulators. The House bill does nothing to change that dynamic.

2. Raises Insurance Premiums. The Congressional Budget Office believes that the bill will raise insurance premiums by 15-20 percent on average in the next two years, with even higher spikes in some areas. Americans care most about lowering health costs and making coverage affordable — yet the bill falls short on that count, retaining all but one of Obama[C]are’s costly mandated benefits and insurance regulations.

On Washington’s political scoresheet, though, the real story is the willingness of Meadows, the Freedom Caucus chairman, to stand up and oppose what can only be described as a bad, bad bill.
