"Senate Republicans can't answer simple and critical questions about the health care bill they're crafting in secret," says Vox after asking eight Republican senators how their bill will actually improve the health care system in the United States. Their vacuous non-answers are truly mind-boggling.
But generally speaking, what are the big problems it is trying to solve?
You name it. Everything from the repeal caucus, which as you know, they have made their views very clear — Rand Paul, etc. And then there are the others on the other side of the spectrum that just want to make minor changes to the present system. There’s not consensus.
So you're saying [the bill] will lower the rates?
Um, if you're talking about lowering the rates from now down, no. The rates could be way up here. [Points to sky] And if they — if we get a bill passed, it maybe wouldn't go up or would go up a heck of a lot less than they would without a bill.
By "rates," are you talking about premiums?
Yeah, premiums. … I'm sorry I have to go.
