Tom DeLay: GOP Will Keep a 'Fixed' Obamacare

Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show"

By    |   Thursday, 16 Mar 2017 05:11 PM

Former House Majority Leader Tom Delay, R-Texas, believes Republican lawmakers will keep a "fixed" form of the Affordable Care Act, despite their ongoing promise to repeal it – and he is disgusted, he tells Newsmax TV.

"I'm about to just throw my hands up and give up," DeLay told Thursday's "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"I never thought I'd see the day that with a Republican majority in the House and the Senate, and a Republican president – that promised the American people he would repeal Obamacare – is going to pass a law that fixes it for the Democrats, and keeps this welfare program, and keeps the government involved in health insurance.

"That's what the Republicans are passing in the House. And when they tell you that it's repealing Obamacare, it isn't. It's fixing the system that's unconstitutional and shouldn't be there in the first place."

What will ultimately happen to the Republican proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with the House-sponsored American Health Care Act, which the Congressional Budget Office said would see 24 million fewer Americans insured by 2026?

"We're going to end up with a fixed Obamacare – that's what we're going to end up with," DeLay told host Steve Malzberg. "And it's just this is not what the American people demanded, and this is not what the American people thought they were going to get out of [President Donald] Trump."
