GOP’s ObamaCare replacement should also boost jobs

On Saturday, Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders called for nationwide protests to stop Republicans from repealing the Affordable Care Act.
The trigger event was Friday’s confirmation of Dr. Tom Price as President Trump’s secretary of health and human services. Price is tasked fulfilling Trump’s promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
Already, protests against repeal are disrupting town halls and making headlines. But the nation won’t be fooled by demonstrators carrying signs. The silent majority — mostly working people — have been clobbered by the health law. They won’t be taking to the streets. They made their views known on Election Day.

Schumer and Sanders talk nonstop about the 20 million covered by the health-care reform law (who will likely be covered by a GOP replacement as well). Democrats ignore the 156 million people with on-the-job coverage who are paying higher deductibles and taking home less pay because of ObamaCare. That’s half the nation.
