Thursday on the radio, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin gave the rundown on the press conference of Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc. (F, 51%), in which Ryan tried to give the hard sell to Americans on the Republican American Health Care Act "reform" plan.
Levin called Ryan’s proposal “repeal in name only." Or, if you will, “RINOcare,” because the GOP plan keeps the core of Obamacare in place.
Levin had a “number of questions” for the speaker, questions that so far remain unanswered.
“Now, here’s my question Mr. Ryan,” Levin said. “How much will the average American’s deduction go up, or down?”
Further, Levin asked, how much will the federal government be spending on subsidies for certain individuals? Will individuals be able to see the doctors they want? The specialists they need? Will individuals be able to go to the hospital of their choice? Will they be able to get the medicines they need to get?
At the end of the day, the problem with RINOcare, Levin explained, is it embraces the Left’s assumption that government involvement is needed to make health insurance affordable. It embraces progressivism; it embraces centralization.
“Republicans have blown it,” Levin said. "There is something horribly immoral about RINOcare."
