Tapper pointed out that Democrats cannot blame President Trump for Obamacare’s failures.
CNN’s Jake Tapper called out Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) in an interview Thursday over Obamacare’s failing insurance markets.
Tapper pointed out the failing market in Warner’s home state of Virginia.
“So, Aetna, just the latest insurer to announce it’s pulling out of the Commonwealth of Virginia, other states are facing the same thing. According to one study, more than 20 counties in Virginia could be left with only one option on the individual market in 2018,” Tapper said.
Warner attempted to blame Republicans for Obamacare’s failure, citing “the lack of certainty” that the Trump administration has created in insurance markets.
Insurance companies are “not sure this administration is going to honor the law’s commitment to the individual mandate,” Warner said.
Tapper objected to Warner’s characterization, saying, “Insurance companies were pulling out of Obamacare exchanges long before Donald Trump put his hand on the Bible.”
Warner then emphasized a need to make changes to the 2010 health care law.
