U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said Friday in Myrtle Beach that he wants states to be able to opt out of Obamacare and he plans an appearance with Gov. Nikki Haley to forward his idea.
He called the national health program “a clever, ill designed, ill-conceived effort” to drive the private sector out of healthcare. He said that people should take more responsibility for their own health and be able to buy the level of insurance they think best for themselves.
He asked how many of the approximately 100 people in the audience asked doctors what they would be charged for care, and few raised their hands.
“If you had a contest to screw up America, you would have a winner,” he said of Obamacare. “Having said that, the status quo is not acceptable either.”
