Bush On Obamacare

Former Governor Jeb Bush told ABC that the GOP should use “self-restraint” when dealing with Obamacare, and that the law will prove in itself that it is flawed. This comment is in response to the negative press the GOP has received after the government shutdown, which has taken attention away from the ACA’s shaky start, as well as the continuous economic downturn after 5 years of Obama’s presidency. Bush also said that the Republicans should have an alternative to Obamacare which offers lower healthcare costs. He said, “We could do this in a much lower cost with improved quality based on our principles, free market principles.”As the media is largely controlled by Democrats with the only alternative being Fox News, it is not a surprise that Americans are not aware of the negative effects of the ACA. With time, however, the GOP will prove to be right.
