ICYMI: Rubio Discusses ObamaCare With Orlando Media
Excerpt from Interview with Central Florida News 13
Senator Marco Rubio
July 19, 2013
Senator Marco Rubio: “Well the President is not telling the full story about ObamaCare. It’s going to hurt a lot of people very badly and the example I use is Gatorland in Central Florida with about 130-some odd employees. Their costs are going to go up dramatically next year. They provide insurance for their employees now. They pay 80 percent of the premiums. Those premiums are going to go up next year because of the changes ObamaCare is making.”
Excerpts from Interview with FOX 35 Orlando
Senator Marco Rubio
July 18, 2013
Senator Marco Rubio: “ObamaCare is a disaster, and it’s going to cost people health insurance that they’re happy with. And just this week, the Teamsters union and Jimmy Hoffa came out and threw out a letter to the President telling him he was breaking his promise, his promise that no one who had health insurance that they liked would not get to keep it.”
FOX 35’s Sonni Abatta: “This is a topic that lawmakers have tried to tackle for years now, and if ObamaCare is not the solution, then what is?”
Rubio: “Everyone should be able to buy health insurance with their own money, tax-free. If your employer pays 80 percent of your insurance premiums, they don’t pay taxes on the money that they’re buying the health insurance for you with. But if you go buy it for yourself, you have to pay taxes on that money. That’s ridiculous. And the last thing is: every single American should be able to buy health insurance from any company in America that will sell it to them.”
Abatta: “The only problem being though, critics would say, is that some of those insurance companies, of course, have the ability to outright refuse coverage and that, supporters of ObamaCare say is the one good thing is the people who truly are in need can get that help.”
Rubio: “Well, you’re talking about there are people who are chronically ill, and that is something government can help with things like a workable high-risk pool, because folks like that are very difficult to cover. So we can give people more choices and then provide something for the people that are chronically ill and therefore very difficult to insure. I think that’s a much better solution than a massive government takeover of one-sixth of our economy, health insurance.”
