Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., isn’t buying the argument that the policy cancellations resulting from Obamacare are an unintended consequence of the law.
“It wasn’t an unintended consequence. It was an intended consequence,” Rubio said Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.” “This was done on purpose because they want to undermine and gut the individual marketplace.”
Rubio didn’t elaborate, but he signed on to a bill introduced Wednesday by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., that would allow people to keep current policies they like even if current rules say they can’t.
Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh has long maintained that Obamacare is a step toward a single-payer plan that essentially would put every American on government-sponsored insurance.
“I’m fully convinced that the chaos that’s happening now could well be intentional to speed it up,” Limbaugh said on his radio show Tuesday.
