In an interview on MSNBC on Tuesday, Sen. Angus King (I-VT) called the American Health Care Act a “disaster on virtually all fronts,” despite the Congressional Budget Office (CBO)’s prediction that the proposed law would reduce individual premiums by 10 percent over the long term.
“You might have a choice to buy health care, but it would take more than half of your annual income. That’s not really a real choice at all,” King said.
King then said the bill was “a disaster on on virtually all fronts,” adding it should have been scrapped and redone.
According to the CBO, individual insurance premiums in 2026 would be 10 percent lower than they would be under Obamacare. Apparently, King thought that lower premiums would be “a disaster” for struggling Americans.
