Van Duyne Calls Obamacare “Biggest Lie” Of All Time
Fresh off of her 2020 win over her Progressive Democratic opponent, the incoming Texas Rep. Beth Van Duyne (R) is pulling no punches as she has just shared her thoughts regarding the unaffordable Obamacare healthcare law.
The landmark achievement from the Obama administration has received unprecedented criticism since it’s inception, and it has largely divided lawmakers and the public regarding the future of Obamacare. Van Dyne, who launched her political campaign as a result of her daughter’s preexisting health condition, is now calling Obamacare the biggest con that Americans have ever received.
In speaking to FOX News, Van Duyne commented that “the Affordable Care Act was one of the biggest lies that has ever been promulgated in U.S. history.”
“The Affordable Care Act was one of the biggest lies that has ever been promulgated in U.S. history,” Van Duyne told Fox News . “The fact that you’re going to be able to keep your doctor; it’s going to lower your health care costs; it’s going to increase your quality — those were all lies. That did not happen. In fact, it was quite the opposite.”
She expressed that “it was quite the opposite.”
In response, Van Duyne expressed that she would like to “personalize” health insurance plan, and this would be done by the need of the individuals, explaining that a young and healthy individual should not have to purchase the same health care plan as an individual that has ongoing medical conditions.
While Van Duyne does agree with protecting preexisting conditions and allowing children to be on their parent’s health care coverage until the age of 26, she does assert that her goal is towards increasing access to care, improving the quality of care, and also decreasing the cost.
House Democrats could be in for a significant dose of Van Duyne once she is sworn into office considering that she has already taken on members of the Progressive House “Squad” led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
