Want cheaper health plans? Tim Kaine says no

Garren Shipley - March 7, 2018

It might not be the flashiest piece of legislation this cycle, but the fight to get Virginians affordable health insurance is moving forward. Republicans in the General Assembly are sending Senate Bill 844 is headed to Governor Northam’s desk. The bill would give Virginia consumers the choice to buy health policies tailored to their needs — rather than the one-size fits all policies mandated by Obamacare.

The bill takes advantage of new rules issued by the Department of Health and Human Services last month. 

 

“We are gratified that the House has joined us in supporting legislation to alleviate the high cost of healthcare and health insurance for Virginians,” said Senate Majority Leader Thomas K. Norment, R-James City, in a press statement. “Senate Republicans advanced these commonsense approaches to reduce the cost of healthcare while increasing affordability and access."


Meanwhile, Tim Kaine and other Democrats are doing their best to make sure Virginians have no choice as to the insurance they buy. Kaine has signed on to a bill that would gut the rule change and shackle short terms plans to the same onerous, unaffordable rules enacted by Obamacare.  

As you cover Tim Kaine’s fight to keep D.C. in control of Virginians’ health care, please consider the following quote from me:

 

"It’s not surprising that Tim Kaine would side with other big-government Democrats like Elizabeth Warren over Virginia consumers. From day one, Republicans have maintained that patients, not unelected bureaucrats, should choose what kind of insurance they buy. The contrast couldn’t be more clear: Virginia Republicans want consumers in charge of their health care. Tim Kaine wants Washington, D.C., calling the shots.” — Garren Shipley, RNC spokesman
