Senator John McCain is fighting to repeal the detrimental Affordable Care Act in Washington DC. McCain’s likely Democratic general election opponent, Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, is blaming McCain for wanting to take healthcare away from the poor. McCain is not taking away healthcare, he is trying to improve the system. An improved healthcare system could be more efficient, cheaper, and better for the American people.
Moreover, a majority of Americans disapprove of Obamacare according to a November 13 gallup study.
Here are the results:
Americans Approval of ACA
If Kirkpatrick is wanting to represent the will of the people in the Senate, then why is she blatantly disregarding the voice of the people?
Its not just those with private insurance who oppose the ACA, many of those on Medicaid or Medicare share similar feelings. The Gallup report detailed the following,
“But whether Americans have a private insurance plan or are using Medicaid or Medicare exclusively, they are still more likely to disapprove than approve of the law, according to aggregated data from Gallup’s 2014 and 2015 Healthcare polls. A majority of Americans with health coverage disapprove of the ACA, with 56% of Americans with private insurance plans disapproving and 50% of those using Medicaid or Medicare disapproving.”
The a majority of the very people Kirkpatrick claim will lose coverage under repeal action actually oppose Obamacare.
Ann Kirkpatrick needs to take a close look at what the people of Arizona and of the United States want. Kirkpatrick is more loyal to Obama and the Democratic agenda than to the people of Arizona. Our elected officials represent our will in government, not the democratic political elite.
