Trump Loyalists Mike Huckabee and Ann Coulter Break With Trump Over Obamacare 2.0: “Will Ruin Republican Party”
“If Obamacare-Lite Passes, It Will Ruin the Republican Party.” This is what JTF has been saying from the beginning.
I have to wonder if Mike Huckabee really thought this through, as his current opinion on the Senate healthcare bill puts him opposite of President Trump, who Huckabee has become a loyal toady to, in every respect.
Where President Trump has praised the Senate’s version of an Obamacare replacement bill (and we’re not even going to play around with the word “repeal,” because it’s not), Huckabee sees trouble ahead.
“Something that is worse than not getting it down quickly is getting it down wrong. And I think they could be on the pathway to making some major blunders,” Huckabee said on Fox Business Network.
Trump loyalist Ann Coulter, author of the book “In Trump We Trust,” disagreed with Fox Business host Stuart Varney on Friday, asserting that if the Senate passes the Republican version of Obamacare, which she referred to as “Obamacare-Lite,” it will “ruin the Republican Party.”
Coulter argued that the bill had nothing to do with free market capitalism and contended that all that was needed was a one-page bill that says “There shall be a free market in health care.” Then, allow those who still wanted Obamacare to have at it.
Coulter said that the Republican bill, which was written behind close doors by lackeys of establishment RINO leader Mitch McConnell (who ironically, Coulter has historically been a huge supporter of), still forces insurers to cover sex-change operations, psychological counseling and gambling addiction, just like Obamacare.
When Varney, a Trumpist in his own right, said that Republican must pass the GOP version of Obamacare or else it will somehow destroy President Trump’s “growth agenda” and “ruin the Republican Party,” Coulter took strong exception.
“No, this is going to ruin the Republican Party,” Coulter said. “This is now Obamacare-Lite and now Republicans are going to get blamed for it,” she asserted.
