Bill Clinton has spoken. When will Sean Eldridge?
It’s getting really awkward for NY-19 candidate Sean Eldridge and the Democrat Party these days. As the health care law flounders, even Bill Clinton is publicly schooling President Obama:
“Even if it takes a change to the law, the President should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got.”
That’s because President Obama has repeatedly promised, “If you like your health plan, you can keep it,” but now millions of Americans – including at least 100,000 New Yorkers – are losing their health coverage under Obamacare.
This Friday, the House of Representatives will vote on the Keep Your Health Plan Act, keeping current health plans for millions of Americans who like their coverage.
Since Sean Eldridge wants to vote in Congress, how would he vote on letting Americans keep their current health plans?
Would he change the law, as Bill Clinton advises, and let people keep their health plans? Or would he stand by President Obama’s health care law, come hell or high water?
The Bottom Line:
Sean Eldridge has championed President Obama’s health care law that is canceling the health care coverage of thousands of New Yorkers and millions of Americans. If Sean Eldridge wants to vote in Congress, it’s time he tells New Yorkers if he would let Americans keep their health plans or force them to live under the mandates of Obamacare.
