GOP Rep. Scott Garrett: Only 'One Or Two People' Were Uninsured Before Obamacare
Rep. Scott Garrett, R-N.J., stopped by “Washington Watch” yesterday to discuss President Obama’s then-upcoming State of the Union address, and was particularly upset that the president would likely praise the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.
Garrett told host Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, that Obamacare was a disastrous failure and only helped the “few” Americans who lacked health insurance before it was put into effect. He predicted that the president, in his address, would point to “the one or two” people who gained insurance as a result of health care reform.
“If I were him, and what he would do, is probably pull out the one or two people in the country who didn’t have health insurance before and say, ‘Look, so and so here has it now and he didn’t have it then, and so and so didn’t have it before and now he has it then [sic],’” he said. “But the question is: Was Obamacare the best way to provide health insurance to those few people who did not have it before at the same time that millions of Americans suffered under the results of it?”
