Chaffetz To 'Self-Reliant' Americans: Time To "Choose Between iPhone And Healthcare"
Zero Hedge --
Sometimes the truth is hard to hear, like "Trump wins" and "Obamacare is failing." It appears, as a pleasant change, Republican congressman Jason Chaffetz dropped an uncomfortable truth bomb on the American people this morning - so used to getting everything they want (as a right) and never having to 'pay' for it - when he told CNN's "New Day" this morning that:
“You know what, Americans have choices. And they’ve got to make a choice... maybe, rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want to spend hundreds of dollars on, maybe they should invest in their own healthcare."
The Hill notes that Chaffetz went on to explain how the plan eliminates parts of ObamaCare that “people said that they don’t want,” referring to the individual mandate, which requires people to purchase health coverage or pay a fine.
