Conservatives are Honor Bound to Oppose Senate Bill
“The Republican Party’s taxpayer-funded bailout of insurance companies is a violation of everything the Party stood for.”
CLIFTON, VA – July 13, 2017 — Senate Republican leaders have released their ObamaCare bailout bill. Brent Bozell, Chairman of ForAmerica, released the following statement:
“Senators who consider themselves ‘conservative’ are honor bound to oppose the motion to proceed on the bill. After having spent seven years solemnly pledging to repeal the monstrosity of Obamacare, Republican lawmakers have broken their word and instead opted to bailout insurance companies with taxpayer dollars and keep people and their healthcare choices under government’s control. They effectively have embraced Obamacare.
“As we learn more of this Obamacare bailout bill, it is evident that the Senate GOP leadership’s legislative function has become defunct. The secretive process used to write the bill was disgraceful. The few tax cuts that exist are swallowed by huge tax increases elsewhere. The bill keeps most of the ACA intact, does not defund Planned Parenthood in any meaningful way, does not cut spending, and does not lower premiums — all of which are violations of cornerstone promises made by the Republican Party.
“The Republican Party’s taxpayer-funded bailout of insurance companies is a violation of everything the Party stood for. Rand Paul is absolutely correct when he called the bill, ‘an entitlement for insurance companies.’”
“No members calling themselves conservative can, in good conscience, support this bill.”
