CNN Accuses Republicans of Stirring Up ‘Uncertainty’ About ObamaCare

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)

CNN’s Christine Romans played Obama spokesperson on Monday’s Starting Point and accused Republicans of creating “uncertainty” about ObamaCare in trying to repeal it. That fits what has seemingly become a CNN line of “stop fighting this law and get in line.”

“I’m wondering, should Congresspeople be spending more time helping their constituents comply with the law rather than continuing all this uncertainty about it?” Romans challenged Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.). Ironically, CNN’s own poll shows a majority in favor of Congress repealing the law.

CNN has scoffed at Republican attempts the repeal the law before. Hours after the Supreme Court upheld the law, anchor Brooke Baldwin asked Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) if he wasn’t being a “sore loser” for continuing to fight ObamaCare.

Romans continued to grill Blackburn about helping her constituents comply with ObamaCare. “I mean, I hear more from Republicans saying ‘we’re going to make this not come true,’ not ‘here’s how we’re going to help you get your business to comply’,” she lamented.

Romans also revealed she counsels small business owners with less than 50 employees that the law won’t crush them, but Blackburn fought back. “[W]hen they talk to their insurance provider, the insurance provider says because of the new regulations that are going to be contained in Obamacare, this is what is happening to your insurance cost,” she insisted.

  1. Republicans passed the BIGGEST HEALTH CARE Bill since Medicare, at that time.
    But 400 BILLION to 1 TRILLION on unconstitutional health care is ok?
    Prescription Drug Benefit.
    The final version (conference report) of H.R. 1 would create a prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. Beginning in 2006, prescription coverage would be available to seniors through private insurers for a monthly premium estimated at $35. There would be a $250 annual deductible, then 75 percent of drug costs up to $2,250 would be reimbursed. Drug costs greater than $2,250 would not be covered until out-of pocket expenses exceeded $3,600, after which 95 percent of drug costs would be reimbursed. Low-income recipients would receive more subsidies than other seniors by paying lower premiums, having smaller deductibles, and making lower co-payments for each prescription. The total cost of the new prescription drug benefit would be limited to the $400 billion that Congress had budgeted earlier this year for the first 10 years of this new entitlement program. The House adopted the conference report on H.R. 1 on November 22, 2003 by a vote of 220 to 215 (Roll Call 669).
