“I don’t like when Republicans use leftist talking points,” said David Webb on Monday, responding to recurring commentary from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) framing the American Health Care Act (AHCA) as a “bailout” for health insurance companies.
“It doesn’t help our cause to use leftist talking points,” added Webb.

Paul regularly casts the AHCA as an example of “crony capitalism,” neglecting to note the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA/”Obamacare”) purpose: to destroy the financial viability of free markets for health insurance to provide a political justification for a state takeover of the nation’s health care infrastructure.
