Health Care Horrors Ahead?

“Senator, so let’s stay hyper focused on real life here. Other than your job, and whether you live in Hartford, or Boston or wherever, other than your job one of the things I think concerns a lot of people is the health care plan that they have for them and their families. Now, we don’t know much about the health care plan that’s being devised in the United States Senate – where you work – but one of the things that has leaked out is that perhaps the Republicans are going to put forward block grants as a package, as part of this health care bill. Could you explain, from your understanding so far of the health care bill, what happens to the poor, the elderly, the young, and the sick, if block grants go to states instead of being part of a national package in the health care bill?” asks Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle of Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) during a conversation about the Senate Republicans’ health care bill. Listen to Murphy’s response here on the possibly “devastating consequences” ahead.
