If the Republican-controlled Senate repeals and replaces Obamacare, 700,000,000,000 people will be harmed according to California Rep. Maxine Waters.
On Wednesday, during an appearance on MSNBC, the California congresswoman made the wild claim while referencing what she believes will be the impact on Kentucky.
Chris Hayes asked Waters about how the White House can claim that the bill can cut costs and increase coverage and Waters replied, “Well, that’s just not true.
“Take, for example, the state of Kentucky. Almost one-third of those people in that state are covered by Medicaid, and so they’re talking about eliminating 700 billion,” she said, looking off camera, seemingly seeking confirmation, “in, uh, Trumpcare bill.”
