Steve Scalise: ‘Very Few’ of Our Members Are Calling Health Care Bill Socialism-Lite

‘Most of our members recognize this bill guts ObamaCare’

EXCERPT:

SCARBOROUGH: "What about Republicans, especially some of your more conservative members? We have had several of them on our show saying this is ObamaCare-lite, that this is socialism-lite. How do you move them from where they are right now to where you want them to be supporting the bill?"
SCALISE: "Very few of our members are talking like that. Most of our members recognize this bill guts ObamaCare and it starts the whole process of completely repealing and replacing ObamaCare. Keep in mind, not only does this bill get rid of the employer mandate, the individual mandate penalties, it actually starts to open a free market where consumers can buy their own health care insurance."
