The video hits rising premiums and diminishing choices under Obamacare.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy posted a video on Tuesday criticizing the problems of Obamacare and explaining what the American Health Care Act would do to fix the issues with the U.S. health care system.
“Obamacare is failing,” the narrator says. “Premiums are skyrocketing and the choices of insurance providers are dwindling.”
The video points out that premiums for American families have more than doubled since 2014, and premiums have tripled in three states.
It also highlights the unimpeded growth of government spending on Medicaid that would top $1 trillion by 2027, while exposing the inconvenient truth that Obamacare covered less than half of the people it was supposed to.
The AHCA would fix these issues, according to the video, by increasing insurance options, reducing premiums, and “putting [Medicaid] on a sustainable budget.”
The video promises “personalized, patient-center health care” following the passage of the bill.
The bill has struggled in the Senate, but McCarthy has not given up on the GOP’s promise to repeal and replace Obamacare and implored his Senate colleagues to join him.
“The American people are tied to Obamacare’s sinking ship, and we have to act now. I encourage my Senate colleagues to support and vote on the American Health Care Act as soon as possible,” McCarthy said.
