The Senate Health Care Bill will cut vital Obamacare programs that gave Americans health insurance in order to lower taxes on the wealthy, writes Al Cross for The Courier-Journal. Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, has done everything to keep the details of his plan under wraps, knowing how detrimental and unpopular its contents will be. Countless Americans covered by Obamacare would lose their health insurance. Republicans only back this bill because they don’t want to fracture their party, which has campaigned to replace the ACA for years.
While still imperfect, the Senate Health Care Bill is a step in the right direction to replace flawed Obamacare, weighs David Harsanyi of The Federalist. Under Obamacare, premiums have risen drastically, while offering fewer health care options for higher prices. In essence, an inadequate welfare system was forced upon the country with programs that are on the verge of collapse. The media instinctively criticizes the health care bill, simply because Republicans forged it. The backlash pessimistically ignores the many positives of improving on Obamacare.
