Marco Rubio Bashes Democrats over Obama's Health Care Law
Taking aim at President Barack Obamas health care law in an appearance on Sean Hannitys radio show on Friday, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., attacked Democrats on the issue, comparing them to treating Americans like children.
As far as the Democrats are concerned, I think they honestly believe, some of them, that once this kicks in people will be happy with it because it will improve their lives in so many ways, Rubio said. Their attitude about it is, well, you know, the attitude of a parent toward a child. You know, Take your medicine. We know it tastes bad, but youll thank us later for it. Thats the attitude theyve adopted about it. The truth is, thats not the way its going to work out and its already hurting real people.
Hannity noted health care premiums went up 40 percent in Florida and Rubio insisted Medicare was also being hurt due to the health care law.
Its not just rates going up, Rubio said. Its people that have coverage that theyre happy with. You know, over 77 percent of Americans have health insurance. Many of them, most of them are happy with what they have and many of them are going to lose that coverage. Theyre going to get thrown to a new insurance plan. Perhaps lose the doctor theyve been seeing all these years. Let me tell you another group thats going to be really hurting. Not enough has been talked about this these people on Medicare Advantage. My moms on Medicare Advantage. Its one of the only choice options available to seniors. Theyre going to lose benefits because Obamacare took money out of Medicare Advantage, not to strengthen the Medicare program but to fund Obamacare. So pretty soon, seniors are going to get a letter in the mail saying, you no longer have coverage for these additional services that you once used to get on your Medicare Advantage plan. I mean its bad all the way around. It hurts every segment of our economy and every segment of our society.
