McSally told The Arizona Republic on Saturday that she’s being “character assassinated” by her critics on health care.
McSally said the fact that 20 million more Americans are insured post-Obamacare does not mean they can all afford their health care. Many Americans are struggling to afford high deductibles and prescriptions, she said.
What’s more, there are still millions of uninsured Americans (about 28 million), she said. Many Americans are opting not to purchase coverage because it is “crappy insurance” and doesn’t meet the needs of their families, she said. She meets such people every day, she said.
“Now what we have is people right now, under Obamacare, with pre-existing conditions who have no health insurance,” she said.
