Rep. Ronny Jackson to Newsmax TV: Future of Healthcare Doomed if Biden Expands ACA

Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, says the future of healthcare in America is doomed if President Joe Biden strengthens the Affordable Care Act and nominates Rachel Levine and Xavier Becerra to positions at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

“The cost is going to go through the roof” if Biden expands the ACA, Jackson said Wednesday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “The Chris Salcedo Show.”

“We can’t afford healthcare as it is right now with just the people that we’d be responsible for under the Biden plan and then you take into account the fact that the border is about to become wide open and we’re going to have thousands and thousands of illegal immigrants that are going to cross into this country that he’s already promised free education, free healthcare, welfare, all these other burdens on our tax dollars that are going to come into play.”

Biden has promised to institute a government-backed public option and make federal subsidies more generous, among other changes.

Levine and Becerra are expected to help him do just that. But opposition to their nominations is sure to come from Republicans.

Levine, Biden’s nomination for assistant HHS secretary, faced scrutiny last May after she moved her mother from a personal care facility shortly as she directed Pennsylvania’s nursing homes and certain care facilities to admit recovered coronavirus patients treated at nearby hospitals.

“This is a person who should not be considered as a deputy secretary of health. She should be under investigation for criminal misconduct right now,” said Jackson.

Becerra was only picked because the Biden administration is “pandering to the socialist agenda,” said Jackson.

“This is not going to work out well for any of us, really.”
