Sen. Lindsey Graham Admits He Didn’t Know How To Replace Obamacare
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina admitted to reporters that he didn’t how to replace Obamacare, despite spending weeks pushing his own bill, Graham-Cassidy, to replace the landmark health law.
Graham admitted his ignorance to journalists in Washington D.C. notes The Intercept:
Nobody in our conference believes Obamacare works. It must be replaced. But until now we didn’t know how to do it.
Graham was asked by a reporter about his staggering ignorance: “You’ve been working to overhaul this for seven years. Why is this so hard?”
Graham, who ran for president in 2016, claimed he only had one month to figure it out:
Well, I’ve been doing it for about a month. I thought everybody else knew what the hell they were talking about, but apparently not…
I’ve enjoyed this more than anything. I’ve learned so much about health care in other states — Pennsylvania, Alaska, Ohio, South Carolina, we have 11 predominantly African-American counties that have unique healthcare needs and one size doesn’t fit all, even within your state. I looked at the history of welfare reform, and I think we can replicate that here.
