Rep. Lee: ‘Pretty Ignorant’ of Trump to Not Realize How Complicated Health Care Is

‘They can’t repeal this, 30 million people will lose health care coverage and we’re not going to go there’

EXCERPT:

LEE: "First with regard to tinkering around the edges, fixing what the problems are, correcting some of the problems, fine. But we’re talking about allowing a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Millions of people around the country are saying once again, to the Republicans, don’t take away my health care. And I just have to say, it’s really unfortunate that the president didn’t really realize how difficult this is. That’s pretty ignorant if you ask me. My grandchildren knew how difficult it was to put together a health care plan that would cover all Americans regardless of their income level, background or where they live. Even in West Virginia, black lung disease is covered now, people suffering from that have coverage. People aren’t going to let this administration take away their health care and we’re going to fight to the end."
