GOP Congressman Says It’s Unfair That Searching Google Reveals How Awful His Health Care Repeal Bill Was

By December 13, 2018No Comments

SHOT: In a recent Judiciary Committee hearing, Rep. Steve Chabot complained to Google CEO Sundar Pichai that Google revealed too many negative articles about the Republican health care repeal bill.

CHASER: All the people who know health care the best say repeal would have been the worst.

23 Million Americans Would Have Lost Coverage Under The AHCA. ​By 2026, 23 million people would have lost coverage. That’s a lot of people!

The AHCA Was The Least Popular Legislation In Three Decades. In Rep. Chabot’s defense, the AHCA never had a 12 percent approval like the Senate repeal plan did.
