Representative Bill Pascrell of New Jersey lost it on Rep. Tim Griffin (R-OK) when he suggested there were efforts made by the GOP to cover preexisting conditions today at the congressional hearings over the difficult Affordable Care Act start up.
Pascrell asked Griffin what he was going to do about his constituents who had already signed up for care from the ACA. Would he go back to them and take their coverage away?
Griffin then responded,
You asked a question and I’m going to answer it. It’s a false choice to say it’s Obamacare or nothing. There are numerous proposals including one that I’m a co-sponsor of…
Pascrell then interrupted,
Are you serious what you just said? Are you really serious? After what we’ve gone through and what we’ve gone through in the last three and a half years? Have you — you can sit there and say, that you had a legitimate alternative after these years? We’ve gone through 44 votes, 48 votes now, of you trying to dismantle the legislation. You call that cooperation? I don’t!
