Should we just accept the Obamacare replacement put forth by Republicans and live with it? Not if Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R) has anything to say about it. Recently asked by a reporter if he was "for the repeal, but not yet replace" he had this to say:
I'm for repeal. Look, we've been waiting for seven years for the opportunity to repeal Obamacare. We waited for the election in 2010, where we got the majority in the House. In 2014, where we got the majority in the Senate. In 2016, where we've now got a Republican in the White House as a result of that election. This is not the repeal bill that we've been waiting for, for all these years. This is a huge opportunity that's been missed. And it's a step in the wrong direction.
What we need to do is repeal the bill and then bring about an iterative, step-by-step process, one in which we can put the American consumer, patients and doctors, back in charge of their own health care decisions, rather than having them made by government bureaucrats in Washington.
"So how do you feel about this, Stu? Because you brought up today that maybe we should consider going for what we have because this is better than Obamacare," Glenn asked Thursday on radio.
Has co-host Stu Burguiere given up the fight?
"If Obamacare is an F, this is a D-plus. So that does not mean it's good. However, there's negotiation here. I do support the idea to try to improve it," Stu said. "You want Obamacare gone. I want those taxes gone. I want a lot of that regulation gone. If you can get most of that gone, maybe you do it."
