This recent comment pretty much explains how Republicans are going to frame the issue of dumping 20 million people from health care. They're lazy.
Check this irresponsible comment:
Republican Rep. Dennis Ross of Florida told Bloomberg: “Not everybody is going to have health care. Some people just don’t care enough about their own care,” he argued, saying Republicans can provide people access to affordable insurance plans, “but whether they take it or not is like trying to legislate responsibility.”
Get that? If you “don't care enough about your own care,” or just aren't responsible, that's not our problem. They're lazy, just like the unemployed getting food stamps and Medicaid.
Once again, the uninsured will raise premiums on those who are responsible and buy insurance. It like they never understood why we had a health care crisis in this country in the first place.
The cost of health care is a huge business expense as well, write off or not. And that write off is also on the chopping block.
