VIDEO – Senator Mitch McConnell (R – Kentucky) cannot answer how Republicans would help the 30 million uninsured Americans if they were to repeal Obamacare. It seems that their “Repeal and Replace” strategy actually does not include a “replace” plan. When pressed multiple times on what the GOP would do for millions of uninsured people, McConnell admits, “that is not the issue”.
McConnell goes on to use the typical GOP scare words for the Fox News viewers, calling Obamacare “job-killing” and a “Western European” system. The interview clearly shows that the Republican healthcare plan is to do nothing but restore the profit machine for the insurance industry. From 2007-2009, Mitch McConnel received $513,772 from health insurance, pharmaceutical, and other health industry lobbyists.
