Sen. Johnson: GOP Bill Will Pass, Help Us Avoid Single-Payer

(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

The last Obamacare repeal bill will pass and "take us off the path of a single-payer system," Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., told "The Joe Pags Show" on Newsmax TV on Tuesday night.

The Graham-Cassidy bill — named for Sens. Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., — would essentially turn control of the healthcare markets over to states by converting funding for the ACA into block grants that a state could use to develop any healthcare system it wants.

The bill comes two months after a previous failed repeal effort in the Senate and is a last-ditch push by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and the Trump administration ahead of a Sept. 30 deadline for Senate action.

"If we do nothing, Obamacare is the law of the land as far as the eye can see and we remain on that path of a single-payer system, or we can take this very powerful first step of turning to funding back those states, let them experiment," Johnson said. "To me this is just a no-brainer."

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., legislation, called the Medicare for All Act, would roll all Americans into Medicare and remove them from private plans and Medicaid.
