In response to the recently released Senate version of Obamacare replacement, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said:
“These cuts are blood money,” Warren said on the Senate floor. “People will die.” More specifically, Warren added that “Senate Republicans are paying for tax cuts for the wealthy with American lives.” 1
She was a member of the Congress which implemented Obamacare – the plan which increased premiums to unfathomable heights (married couple with no children at home in Ohio with moderate coverage and high deductibles pays $1,700 per month). The plan has absurd requirements causing insurers to leave many counties and states, thus decreasing competition (and we know what that does to prices). This is the plan which Rep. Nancy Pelosi famously said that we would have to pass it in order to learn what’s in it, and we have regretted the result.
Sen. Warren is all up in arms about the proposed health plan which might force Congress to move public health insurance assistance from the backs of average Americans to a sensible federal plan where the burden is distributed fairly. (This does not mean going to socialized medicine, the “single payer” program which Obamacare had in mind after it deliberately destroyed our private insurance system, a goal well on its way to realization.)
All of this outrage from a member of the party which promotes the killing of babies (59 million victims since Roe v. Wade)2 and a disciple of President Obama who, as a senator, would not vote against the horrific practice of late term abortion.
We can’t take her or the rest of the hypocritical Democrats seriously.
