Oklahoma Republican Stephanie Bice Says Poor People Don’t Need Health Insurance, Just Savings Accounts

Republican Stephanie Bice — who is running against Rep. Kendra Horn in Oklahoma — claimed during an interview that poor people don’t need health insurance or even Medicaid, but rather health savings accounts:

The difference between my opponent and I is how do you get there. That’s the difference. I think that there are a lot of ways that you can utilize things like a health savings account. Instead of providing insurance, let’s give an individual a health savings account with a certain amount of dollars in it and let them spend those dollars on health-related

Horn responded by tweeting that just one visit to the hospital with COVID-19 is $73,000, which is far beyond the reach of a health savings account.
