Kinzinger: GOP Needs Replacement Bill for Obamacare

Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R., Ill.) told MSNBC’s Chris Jansing Wednesday that Republicans need to offer an alternative healthcare plan to Obamacare, a program that received no Republicans votes in either chamber of Congress upon passage in 2010. When Jansing asked the Congressman about Obamacare’s coverage of those previously unable to get insurance, Kinzinger responded:

"Look, we've always said that people that are uninsured should have a way to get insurance. So the Republican alternative plan frankly back when house bill 3200 was being debated had a provision for that. So I'm a big believer that we need to find a replacement bill if and when the Obama care or affordable care act ends up falling, saying look, we still agree with the goals of insuring everybody, bringing the cost of health care down, but here’s our belief in how you can get it done."
