Addressing a town hall in his district, a Republican congressman from Florida was unable to defend his partyís failure to offer an alternative health plan to the Affordable Health Care Act, calling their efforts ďabsurd.Ē
Speaking from the back of the room, a constituent listed features of the new healthcare law, asking Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL) why repealing them would be a good idea.
ďYouíve voted to repeal it approximately 50 times. Had zero votes on a replacement,Ē the unidentified man asked.ďSo my question is, why do you think it is so good to deny seniors on Part D to make them pay more, about $4,000 more for medicine, and people with pre-existing conditions get denied insurance, have 26-year-olds have a harder time getting insurance because they canít get on their parentsí? Why do you think those are good ideas?Ē
ďI think one of the most unfortunate things my party did the last three years was not offer an alternative to health care,Ē Ross responded.ďIíve always felt that way. I think itís absurd when I tell people that this isnít what you should do, but I donít have an alternative for you.Ē
