Raucous crowd quizzes Deb Fischer on health-care bill being crafted in Senate

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Robynn Tysver

U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb., endured a slew of boos and hisses Friday as she faced questions from Omahans and others upset at the secrecy in which Republicans are crafting a health-care bill in Congress.

One man told Fischer that he believed Republicans were “hiding” the bill because they knew it would drive up health-care costs for many Americans.

Fischer did not condemn the process, but she also did not aggressively defend the Senate GOP leaders who are writing the bill. She told about 140 people gathered at a town hall meeting in Omaha that she would prefer a public hearing be held and/or Democrats be allowed to be involved in the process.

But Fischer made it clear it was not her call.

1. They are going to do it, count on it. They are protected by Koch money.

2. Hey Fisher it is your f*** ing call to do your call, that is the job you were hired too do,

to inform and protect the country from a third state system being created by a right wing fascist plutocratic ass**** from Kentucky , that has lips like a turtle. Maybe that's his problem he was called turtle lips when he was growing up

This is a republic lady and small (d ) democracy , have you by chance asked any questions?

Why don't you go to the floor of the senate, Fisher and demand a public accounting--------------------it's really simple---------------TRY IT, your paid $174,000 a year to just that.

Your Party is spending our money behind close doors to f*** people over--------------------your party is the DEATH PANEL DU JOUR, in real time

And for the citizens in Nebraska:

3. to thunderous applause that the time had come in this country to adopt a public health care syste

this is good to see.




A core group of the people who attended the meeting were there to express their concerns about health care and Republican efforts in Congress to repeal the controversial Affordable Health Act, also known as Obamacare. They argued that the law has made it much more affordable for people with pre-existing conditions to acquire health care.

Several also argued — to thunderous applause — that the time had come in this country to adopt a public health care system similar to other developed countries such as Canada and Swede
n.

“There’s a lot of people who make a lot of money off of our health and I don’t think that’s right,” one man told Fischer.

Fischer made it clear she did not support universal health care or Obamacare.

4. What a joke. This was supposed to be their "secret weapon" to shore up the women's vote.

Or as Republicans put it, "pre-existing conditions with lady parts."

7. If you know what's in it

and can't get that info to the public, you got to go.

If you don't know what's in it and vote for it anyway, you got to go.

What's so fucking hard about this? Oh, right! You're a paid-for shill. My bad.

9. She's a tool .....people must have "access"

Another one of their little talking points. The article didn't say how many people were outside and didn't get in. I'm surprised she even had this. She ducked people in Lincoln, but had plenty of time to meet with corporate interests.

Peace

10. I called 11 Repub senators today and the phone lines were busy...GOOD!

Of course it will still pass but at least citizens are finally beginning to hear about it again. Heller-NV was the only one whose staffer said he is against Trumpcare. We only need one or two Repub to vote "No" as long as ALL the dems do too. The bill will get a "Yes" from Pence if it comes down to it though.
