In their haste to slam the GOP tax bill, Democrats like Kamala Harris have been forced to declare war on self-awareness:
Because Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed, they’re trying to turn this tax bill into a health care bill by repealing the ACA’s individual mandate. 13M more people will become uninsured in the next decade, and many face premium increases of up to 10%.

Do you really want to go there, senator?
Oh, no… a 10% increase???? What kind of rate increases do you think there have been since the ACA started?
I would have welcomed a 10% increase, instead I pay $932 a month for me only, so spare me your phony outrage.

Reality checks INCOMING!
Kami, you are so Green that you don't understand how #Obamacare works, nor do your constituents. The prem were going up regardless of anything that happened, #OBAMAFRAUD knew this. Tax bill gives voters the opt to opt out of Obamacare and not pay the tax penalty, saving millions

But the Democrats rose our premiums by forcing the ACA on us. Sorry, I forgot Harris… We needed to pass it to know how good it was (not)

My ACA plan was $1900/mo for 2018. So whenever you want to actually talk to someone impacted I am here for you. Otherwise, please shove your lies… https://t.co/796KxwUuA8

Translation: 13 million more people won’t be forced to buy health insurance that they don’t want or can’t afford. https://t.co/wnC1IC0gNV

The individual mandate is a tax.
And if 13 million people only bought health insurance because of threats by the IRS, that's an indictment of your policies. https://t.co/wgdYd95hc6

Democrats turned a Health Insurance bill into a Tax bill by forcing a tax penalty on people who can't afford the government-mandated insurance.
So you can stop with your garbage spin, now. https://t.co/edujxcJ4km

Stop this. Allowing Americans to choose whether or not they have health insurance is NOT stripping insurance from anyone. I know, Democrats can’t stand the idea of Americans thinking for themselves and keeping more of their own money, but it’s time. https://t.co/P4eJcVAzKf
