Kasich: Sometimes my party asks too much

Post by confuzzled dude on Sun Jul 02, 2017 1:44 pm

Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) lectured congressional leaders of his party on Sunday for being shortsighted, disingenuous and, ultimately, doomed to be forgotten by history if they persist with their approach to health-care legislation.

“Sometimes my party asks too much,” Kasich said on ABC's “This Week,” saying he and others would not be fooled by “efforts to try to buy people off” with little fixes to the Senate bill to increase spending to combat opioid addiction or give more financial support to low-income people seeking health coverage.
But Kasich stressed Sunday that “it's not just Medicaid, and the fact that there's not enough money in Medicaid legitimately to treat people” that has prompted his opposition to the bill.

“It’s the whole thing,” he said. “It's the entire package, which I believe can and should be fixed.”

The sins of the health-care package Kasich has identified go right to the heart of the bill, he said. If the Obamacare exchanges are collapsing, he stressed, “you can't also give people three or four thousand dollars a year and think they can buy an insurance policy.”

“What kind of insurance policy can you buy at three or four thousand dollars a year?” Kasich asked.
