As the CBO's revised numbers further evidence that obamacare fails to address the underlying problems in the cost of health care in this country.
Joining us now -- congresswoman Nan Hayworth of New York.
Positions while member of the house financial services committee.
And she says obamacare.
Ourselves should be repealed.
Well it -- doesn't it will not achieve this Douglas just said it will not achieve the goals that and the beneficial -- who wanted to have it will add to the cost of care.
It does not address the fundamental drivers of costs that are unique in this country namely.
Liability issues and the fact that we like to have.
Choice and competition and if me ignored those things then we will raise the cost of care.
Raising the cost of care which is exactly the opposite of what this administration declare.
Problems that would be -- back.
Secondly this administration promised that everyone watching you and listening to us -- night.
Would be able to keep their health care and he also promised.
Their premiums would go down that you've gone -- The and these are out right lies.
Is there some reason that you folks in Washington don't want to -- just speak plainly about.
I mean this is if they in the vernacular where I'm from this is -- on -- going of the highest order.
Well we're absolutely right this is the Affordable Care Act was pushed -- to the American public was promoted.
-- as something that would save on costs that would not.
Have any net effect on the choices that we made we would be able to keep the insurance that we like we know today with the CBO's figures that that is absolutely not true unfortunately millions of Americans.
Are going to lose the health care they like and are going to be.
Pushed into the exchanges that they may don't want to be end.
And into Medicaid.
-- I'd love looking down at some of these numbers the CBO march analysis two years ago.
Answering the gross costs for the federal government.
Will be 938.
Billion as everyone -- and I and you remember.
All everyone was so proud the administration touting the fact they stayed under a trillion Nancy Pelosi was so thrilled.
And here we are approaching two and likely went through -- these projections it's going to be much harder.
If you look at the history of Medicare which is an essential program for our seniors and by the way.
The CBO hasn't made note today in the fact that 500 million dollars in shifted out of Medicare buy Affordable Care Act.
Which are going to accelerate Medicare's bankruptcy but if you look at the cost of Medicare and astonishingly the part of the Republican presidential candidates don't make much of that at all.
It's an enormous issue we have made much of it in the house.
But of course say it's a challenge getting in those voices through when the president still has that it is my -- As the biggest megaphone but also in there is an underestimation I believe that the American people talk which means they know what is happening here and and to not make this part of the national conversation that is a in nominating process a primary process I think.
Is unfortunate -- what.
What happens -- re going to see 72% -- as a -- want it -- you want it repealed yet and highlights that is so.
Work forward what are we go here.
There's overwhelming support by the American public for four have been.
And modifying it not repealing this long -- and understandably they are applying common sense to you said -- was so we're gonna continued bush in the House of Representatives.
We need to have that pressure on the senate and on the president.
To go along with the sensible measures that we are trying to introduce to change the climate in health care for the back.
Up a reminder again that poll said -- repeal it and say repeat what I wonder I know you republic -- wanna do that.
But some of this horrible leery of what's -- on down there we would think maybe just leave everything repeal of the dissuade her report along for a well.
That ArcelorMittal referred to talk with thanks for being here.
