Dem Rep Garamendi: GOP Healthcare Legislation ‘Purposefully, Physically’ Hurts People

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Representative John Garamendi (D-CA) argued that healthcare legislation proposed by Republicans is “terrible” for people “purposefully,” and “physically” hurts them.

Garamendi said, “The problem here is not that the Democrats are not working with the Republicans. It’s that A. The Republicans refuse to even allow any Democratic solution to be included. And secondly, the policies of the Republicans themselves are terrible for the American people. Why anyone would want to go out and purposefully, physically harm people, I will never understand. But that’s precisely what their proposed legislation does.”
