Tom Cotton: 'It's Going To Take A Lot Of Work' To Fix Republican Health Care Bill

Source: Talking Points Memo

By ESME CRIBB Published MARCH 19, 2017, 9:52 AM EDT

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Sunday called for Republicans to put in "a lot of work" to fix problems with their bill to repeal Obamacare instead of "trying to rush to some arbitrary deadline."

"I simply think that it's not going to work to bring down premiums for working Arkansans and working Americans all across the country," Cotton said on CNN's "State of the Union."

He called on Republicans to resolve issues with the legislation instead of trying to rush it through.

"It's fixable, but it's going to take a lot of work," Cotton said. "And we need to roll up our sleeves and focus on fixing those problems rather than trying to rush to some arbitrary deadline."

1. OMG, the world truly is about to end.

Tom Cotton just showed some concern for the working people of America, Repugs just don't do that, at least not based on reality. They usually just gin up fear and use that to hurt their constituents, other than the rich. The rich they bleed for and make sure they get all the goodies taken away from working class folks. Good for Cotton, guess even broken clocks are right twice a day.

3. Because at his so-called ''town hall'' people were booing his ass. Maybe

he got the message. Frankly I hope he gets booted out of office .. if that's possible in his neck of the woods.

2. It was fixable under the ACA, the Republicans are the ones who manipulated

the ACA so that premiums stayed high and that there was no negotiation on drug prices. They are so full of shit. This was Romney Care folks, a Heritage Foundation creation that was adapted by the Obama administration. Cotton is such a dork.
