Congressman Grothman On Failed Obamacare Repeal


Congressman Glenn Grothman says he wonders if Republicans in the House won’t reconsider the repeal of Obamacare sooner rather than later after a failed attempt last week. He says Thursday night Republicans seemed to be behind the repeal, but over 18 hours it fell apart. He says Republicans says they won’t try and repeal Obamacare for 6 months. But Grothman says the reaction he got from people over the weekend was disappointment over the failed Republican effort. He says he was in Fond du Lac, Sheboygan, and Manitowoc and where ever he went people wondered what went wrong and why Republicans didn’t repeal it. He says the Republican version of a Health Care bill did include some good things. He says it was a very conservative bill that would have slowly weaned people off Medicaid, allowed work requirements for people getting these programs; it would have defunded Planned Parenthood in an unrelated situation in the next year. He says it would also have reduced mandates on insurance companies, which should have resulted in reduced insurance rates.
