Many of us never thought we would live to see the day Elizabeth Warren, the United States Senator of Massachusetts, ever got off her high horse and admitted that a law she has long supported was, in fact, extremely flawed.
But, for now, it looks like that’s what has happened.
For years, Senator Elizabeth Warren has proudly shown her support for the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.
Senator Elizabeth Warren has even gone so far as to vote against any sort of Obamacare repeal attempts.
You make think that Warren would at least have integrity and stick to what she believes.
As of late, Warren has started singing a different tune upon having an “epiphany.”
She teamed up with a United States Senator from Indiana, Mike Braun, in a bipartisan letter to the Human and Health Services Department inspector general to reveal some of her concerns surrounding Obamacare.
Most Americans with half a brain have had the same concerns since day one!
“In functioning markets, generic drugs cost 80 to 85 percent less than their name-brand equivalents, giving patients much-needed relief from high drug costs and saving taxpayer dollars. But patients – including patients in public health care programs like Medicare and Medicaid – who either use or are compelled to use vertically integrated specialty pharmacies are not seeing this relief,” wrote Warren.
As a reminder, Obamacare became effective back in early 2010.
The letter from the two senators continued with more mind-blowing “epiphanies.”
“By owning every link in the chain, a conglomerate like UnitedHealth Group – which includes an insurer, a PBM, a pharmacy, and physician practices – can send inflated medical payments to its pharmacy. Then, by realizing those payments on the pharmacy side – the side that charges for care – rather than the insurance link of business appears to be in compliance with MLR requirements, while keeping more money for itself,” said the senators.
It is hard to wonder if Senator Elizabeth Warren really is just that clueless or if there could possibly be another ulterior motive at play.
Why, after 13 grueling years, has she decided to withdraw her support from the Affordable Care Act?
