The Republican bill to repeal and replace parts of Obamacare passed on Thursday, and between choruses, Democrats have been attacking the bill as dangerous for people with pre-existing conditions.
One of those Americans with a pre-existing condition, who also happens to be a U.S. Army veteran who lost both his legs in Kandahar, spoke in favor of the bill and denounced the Democrats’ history of bold-faced lies.
“I, too, am a person with pre-existing conditions, and I believe it’s not just something I should do, it’s a responsibility for me to be the staunchest advocate for people out there that have pre-existing conditions, and that is why I am such an ardent supporter of this bill,” Rep. Brian Mast (R-Fla.) declared on the House floor Thursday.
Mast argued that people with pre-existing conditions cannot get coverage under Obamacare, because how can “they have coverage if every single insurance provider has pulled out of the market”?
“It is the exact same group of people that went out there and lied to the face of every single American, telling them that if they like their plan, they would keep their plan; if they like their doctor, they would keep their doctor; that the average American family was going to save $2,500 or more on health insurance,” Mast declared.
“That was a bold face lie, and it was orchestrated by architects who specifically went out with the intention to prey on the American people,” the veteran concluded. “That is who’s out there selling lies against my party.”
