During a presidential campaign event in Iowa on Saturday, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand was given a note from someone about a medical bill for a strep test that cost $603.
She, of course, was indignant.
One of the panelists at our Family Bill of Rights roundtable in West Des Moines showed me one of her recent medical bills.
$603. For a strep test. This is absurd.
Families are being crushed by everyday costs, and they need a real economic policy plan to provide relief. pic.twitter.com/v2KrdDGKYB

Oh, that’s right, and how did Sen. Gillibrand vote on Obamacare again?

Oh, that’s right.
Welcome to Obamacare. https://t.co/2RCSmupqJZ

Yep! Obamacare is pay as you go! If you still have work insurance, you don’t pay for a strep test. But Obamacare will rape you! https://t.co/bFuH8Yvbh4

Kind of a far cry from this.
If the GOP destroys the Affordable Care Act, it will have real, direct consequences for millions of American women and their families.

Then again, she knew Obamacare was based on a lie from the get-go, so she said in 2013 (via Washington Times):
“We all knew,” Mrs. Gillibrand said on ABC’s “This Week,” referencing the fact that she and many others were fully aware that Obamacare would result in cancellations.
But wouldn’t dare vote for repealing the disastrous law because Trump and GOP evil!

Yet she’s the one to fix it.
She’s got a point! Kellyanne Conway says Dem candidates are showing that they really think Obamacare stinks https://t.co/AwvZTWUGAr
