Michelle Malkin: 'I Do Not' Like GOP Healthcare Plan

(Fox News' "Fox and Friends")

Conservative Review editor Michelle Malkin slammed Congressional Republicans' plan to replace the Affordable Care Act on Fox News Thursday.

When asked if she likes the plan, Malkin responded, "I do not."

She added, "I think it behooves limited government conservatives in Washington, D.C. to push as strongly and fiercely as possible for the best repeal and replacement.

"As for the doctor's lobby and the [American Medical Association], well, they helped get us into this mess. Because they allowed themselves to be tools for Obamacare in the first place. And one might say the same thing about so many of the other industry lobbyists. Let alone the big labor bosses who all signed on to Obamacare in the first place."

The Republican plan to replace Obamacare passed its first challenge on Thursday, gaining approval from the House Ways and Means Committee.

The AMA sent a letter to Ways and Means and the House Energy and Commerce Committee criticizing the plan for "the expected decline in health insurance coverage and the potential harm it would cause to vulnerable patient populations," according to CNN

The American Nurses Association and America's Health Insurance Plans both came out against the GOP plan, MSNBC reports, though Republicans in support of it dismissed their concerns.

"So many of these lobbyists have dug their own grave," Malkin said on "Fox and Friends." "And meanwhile millions of people in the individual market like myself who are self-employed, who do not get health insurance through corporations, they are the ones that have us so screwed and they have no lobby. There is no one speaking for them."

Malkin continued, saying "the problems that were created in the first place, that Obamacare were supposed to solve, were the problems of government intervention. So the less of it that we have, the better off we will all be. I mean, I had three health insurance plans in the individual market in Colorado cancelled because of Obamacare."
