Wasserman Schultz: Obamacare Premium Hikes Just ‘Kinks’ to ‘Iron Out’

by Pam Key | Breitbart.com  |  published on October 27, 2016

Tuesday on CNN’s “Wolf,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D- FL.) said the reported large premium increases many Americans are getting on their Affordable Care Act insurance plans are just “kinks” that need to be “ironed out.”

Wasserman Schultz said, “You know, I think that voters when they go to the polls and make a decision about who they want to vote for for president are going to vote for Hillary Clinton, because they know that she has been focused on making sure that we can continue to add more people who have health care insurance. We have 20 million people who now have health insurance that didn’t before. When it comes to the rate increases, we have the slowest rate of health insurance costs in 50 years, since the passage of Obamacare. Look, it’s also important to note, that insurance premiums went up double digits every year before Obamacare.”

“But now because of the tax credits available to 91 percent of Floridians and 84 percent of uninsured and previously uninsured Americans nationwide, most of these folks are able to pay $100 or less in their monthly premium and so while there are costs that have continued to go up, it’s the slowest rate increase in 50 years and as for the kinks that need ironed out, we need to sit down together, like Hillary Clinton has said over and over, with Republicans across the table and iron out those kinks,” she continued. “That’s what we are committed to do to continue with a plan that has given 20 million people insurance and people like me, a breast cancer survivor, not to have to worry about dropped coverage like we had to before.”

    Another in the ongoing LIES from the DNC and this woman. The “kinks” to be ironed out are getting GOVERNMENT OUT OF OUR HEALTHCARE. The dems/libs like the mantra to “keep government hands off our bodies” when defending abortion, how about the rest of the time? Why should government intervention into my prostate be less than their intrusion into your vagina?

    Billions Wasted Now…How Much More Before The Idiots In DC realize that the Math just doesn’t Work…
    Let the Free Market decide on Insurance and HealthCare…Not Government!!

  • justinwachin

    Yes, Democrats should sit down with Republicans to try to fix the problems with Obamacare. That hasn’t happened so far because the two sides fundamentally disagree about what is needed to make health care affordable.

    Ms. Schultz’s assertions are not accurate. The prices on health insurance are skyrocketing. It is just the Democrats are happy to have the federal government pick up the tab and add it to the national debt. Under Obamacare your great grandchildren will be paying decades from now for your trip to the doctor.

    • Webb

      Fix…Is Only Repeal!!

      I hope trump does “Drain The Swamp”. He needs to start a Citizen’s Tribunal and start walking these poor excuses for humans in front of it on the charge of treason, sedition and a whole laundry list of crimes against our Country, Constitution and Citizens.
