Seriously? 31 Times?
Seriously? Scott Desjarlais (R, TN-04) and Diane Black (R, TN-06) and Phil Roe (R, TN-01) and John Duncan, Jr. (R, TN-02) and Chuck Fleischmann (R, TN-03) and Marsha Blackburn (T, TN-07) and Stephen Fincher (R, TN-08)? Your latest attempt to repeal health care reform is your 31st try?
During the past three years conservatives have failed to take away health care 31 times and have failed to pass the President’s jobs bill even once. Repealing the health care law would unequivocally hurt the constituents of Representatives Desjarlais, Black, Roe, Duncan, Fleischmann, Blackburn, and Fincher, many of whom already rely on Obamacare for benefits. Their demonstration today proves once again that they care more about political posturing than solving problems for Tennesseans.
The Affordable Care Act already benefits and provides consumer protections to thousands of Tennesseans, including those with life-threatening illnesses who no longer face caps on benefits, millions who benefit from being on their parents’ plans, children whose pre-existing conditions are now covered, seniors who are now able to afford their prescription drugs and consumers who are beginning to receive rebates due to insurance company overcharges.
Watching cat videos on YouTube would be a more productive use of their time than this.
