Cavuto: Do Democrats Have Any Heart at All?
On "Your World" today, Neil Cavuto blasted Democrats for their scathing criticisms of the Senate version of the GOP health care bill.
"If Republicans still spending hundreds of billions of dollars is mean, please tell me what constitutes nice," and incredulous Cavuto said.
"The Senate bill may be meaner" than the House bill, Sen Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on Capitol Hill.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called the bill "heartless" at a press conference.
Cavuto pointed out that people with preexisting conditions are still covered under the new bill, and children can still stay on their parents plans until age 26.
What is "mean," he remarked, is doubling premiums, shrinking coverage, limited insurance plan options, and failing subsidies.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unveiled the Senate's bill Thursday after leadership was roundly criticized for the secretive process. The vote is planned for next week, but four Republican senators have already said they will not vote for it, making it dead on arrival as it stands now.
Schumer lecturing the GOP about the secretive process by which the bill was drafted is "pretty stupid," said Cavuto, since ObamaCare was cooked up in secret.
Democrats' comments show a "phony interest in the health of folks for whom liberals couldn't care less."
"We need a stethoscope alright, not to find whether there's any heart in this latest Republican plan, but to confirm whether Democrats have any heart at all," Cavuto concluded.
