    "Show Me The Plan"-Franken Fights Back Against Obamacare Repeal

    Uploaded by Michael McIntee In a speech from the Senate floor last night, U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) cited stories from Minnesotans whose lives have been saved because of the Affordable Care Act and urged his Republican colleagues—who are currently trying to repeal the law, including its life-saving protections—to show the American people their replacement plan.

    Partial quote:
    “I’ve been talking to a lot of people in Minnesota who have health insurance thanks to the Affordable Care Act, or whose lives were changed by the protections in the ACA that benefit every American,” said Sen. Franken. “And, frankly, they are scared. Hardworking people for whom this is life or death. If their health insurance is taken away, they don’t know what they’re going to do. So today, on their behalf, I have one request for my Republican colleagues: show us your plan.

    “Show me the plan that keeps coverage for the 20 million people who’ve gained coverage, that would bend the cost curve so that the costs of the entire health care system grow less quickly as they have, and that would ensure that nobody gets denied coverage when they need it or has to unfairly pay more than someone else because of their gender or a pre-existing condition,” Sen. Franken continued. “Show me that plan.”
