“But access for lower income Americans doesn’t equal coverage,” Camerota said.
“Well, we’re getting rid of the individual mandate. We’re getting rid of those things that people said that they don’t want,” Chaffetz replied. “Americans have choices, and they’ve got to make a choice. So rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in their own health care.
“They’ve got to make those decisions themselves,” Chaffetz added.
Camerota asked if health care will “require some sacrifice” for lower-income Americans.
“We have to be able to lower the cost of health care,” he said. “We do think that with more choices, that you will get a better product at a lower price and that will be good for everybody on the entire spectrum of income.”
