Coulter: Obamacare Repeal ‘Probably Will’ Cost Republicans Control Of The House

Voters in next year’s midterm congressional elections will punish Republican lawmakers who voted for the American Health Care Act, Ann Coulter predicted Saturday.

Breitbart News reported that Fox News’ Jesse Watters asked the conservative commentator and author: “So, the Democrats think this is going to cost House Republicans in 2018. How do you see it?” Coulter answered: “I think it probably will. Let’s hope it doesn’t pass the Senate.”

The House approved the AHCA, a bill repealing and replacing Obamacare, by a narrow four-vote margin. No Democratic representative supported the measure, which likely faces a complete overhaul in the Senate. Many Democrats agree with Coulter that the GOP’s majorities in both houses of Congress could be at risk because of the legislation. Recent polls found widespread support for Obamacare and just 17 percent support for the AHCA.

Coulter and other far-right Republicans do not think the bill goes far enough. They favor a full repeal of Obamacare, which is formally called the Affordable Care Act. “Health care has been socialist for a long time in this country, even before Obamacare came along,” Coulter said. “We have Veterans Affairs, Social Security disability, Medicare, Medicaid. … Socialism doesn’t work. I don’t know why we have to keep explaining this to our representatives. It doesn’t work. What you want is a free market. They won’t separate the welfare cases from the free market cases. America is not going to allow people to die on the street.”

ABC News reported that President Trump, who promised during his campaign to “repeal and replace” Obamacare, is lobbying Senate Republicans to “not let the American people down.” Some GOP senators are concerned about the AHCA’s Medicaid cuts and language concerning health-insurance coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

“The Senate is starting from scratch,” said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. “We’re going to draft our bill, and I’m convinced we will take the time to do it right.” She criticized House Republicans for passing the bill before the Congressional Budget Office had conducted a financial analysis.
