Beyond the inflammatory “blood money” rhetoric that Sen. Elizabeth Warren should not have used given the events of last week, she’s wrong on the facts. When Medicaid was original set up, it was designed to help poor women, children and the disabled. But because the Obama administration and Democrats were so intent on ramming through Obamacare, they ended up making Medicaid not effective in helping who it was originally supposed to help. They dumped so many able-body people on the program that the demand for doctors appointments/care was so high that the poor women, children and disabled could not get access. The Democrats opposition to the Republican health care plan is an example of them crying wolf because they are wrong on the facts.
I joined Liz Wheeler’s Tipping Point show on OANN on June 23, 2017 to discuss.
