Diane Black: “I am confident this bill is going to come out of Budget”
This morning, House Budget Committee Chairman Diane Black talked to MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson about the American Health Care Act and her confidence that the committee will pass the bill tomorrow to help those suffering under Obamacare.
“We don’t want to have the American people suffer anymore,” said Chairman Black. “I come from a state where there was a 63% increase in premiums last year. We have two thirds of our counties that only have one provider. That’s not choice; that’s a monopoly. And we actually have places in East Tennessee where there are no providers left…for the exchanges. So let me just say that my constituents are suffering and they’re saying ‘help us out.’ [Obamacare] is a failed plan and we’re going to rescue them and put something more patient-centered in place that will give them an opportunity to have what they want at a cost they can afford.”
