Rep. Sean Duffy, R-WI, on Monday slammed Democratic leadership for opposing the Republicans’ Obamacare replacement, saying the opposition party has done nothing to improve Obamacare.
“Has Nancy [Pelosi], or Chuck Schumer, or Barack Obama come up with any fix to ObamaCare?” Duffy asked during an appearance on “Fox and Friends.”
“My district in central northern Wisconsin, it was a Democrat-leaning district. Donald Trump won it by over 60 percent because healthcare doesn’t work for people,” Duffy continued.
Duffy said the cost of the Affordable Care Act needs to be corrected because the costs are so high it is “unusable.”
“The bottom line is if you are paying $2,000, $3,000 a month on premiums and $12,000 deductible that’s unusable. They need us to reform this,” Duffy said.
The Wisconsin Congressman said he believes that Democratic leadership is willing to work with Republicans once the law is passed.
“The Democrats are going to have to get on board. I think the pressure is going to come to bear. The key point for Democrats, once we repeal and start the replacement, they know they can’t go back,” Duffy said. “That’s when they will have to come to the table and I think negotiate with us. I think Nancy is going to be part of that conversation, or maybe I’m hopeful because Spring is in the air.”
