Bill Cassidy quotes

I suspect the advocates for the bill will say that's their guarantee. I will insist that the president's pledges be met. And the president pledged that he would take care of people with preexisting conditions.feedback

I think a better approach is to stabilize the insurance pool.feedback

There's a widespread recognition that the federal government, Congress, has created the right for every American to have health care.feedback

Sometimes perception becomes self-reinforcing, and the idea that one would work across the aisle becomes a betrayal to left-wing politics, if you will, which frankly is clearly how this was driven.feedback

It is my understanding that never has there been one filibustered. We can see that those things that have happened, like civil rights, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, that have had an enduring positive effect on our country, have been done in a bipartisan fashion. When it's done with one party jamming it through, much like Obamacare, it leads into years of divisiveness. I think it's another place if we're going to find something that works across the nation, we need to have both parties involved.feedback

The folks who Hillary Clinton called the 'deplorables' are actually those who want better coverage, who we'd be hurting if we don't change this bill.feedback

The first myth is that replacing ObamaCare creates a 'new' entitlement to universal healthcare or health insurance that did not previously exist. The second myth – cutting funding for coverage means that society saves money. The third – Republican politics demand a paltry replacement or none at all.feedback

Ronald Reagan said that everyone is entitled to their own opinions but not their own facts. The fact is that it is better to pay for the care that someone is going to receive no matter what, so as to maximize an American's potential to contribute to society, than to instead pay for expensive, inefficient, episodic care which watches a patient decline and burdens families and society. We should maximize potential. It is good policy. It is good politics.feedback

President Trump said that he wants as many people covered as under Obamacare. He said that health care should be affordable. If there's 14 million people losing insurance, of course it's concerning. I try to avoid hyperbole and adjectives, but it's concerning.feedback

It's pretty eye-popping – 14 million people who will lose insurance in a year relative to baseline. That's something that folks should be a little bit concerned about.feedback

I would want to know the score, you know, what is the coverage and what is the cost, absolutely.feedback

I would want to know the score, you know, what is the coverage and what is the cost, absolutely. I'm trying to be diplomatic.feedback

The Affordable Care Act is, if you will, a different animal, and Obamacare is a different subset of it. Complete repeal is not what President Trump ran on. President Trump ran on everyone having coverage, caring for those with pre-existing conditions without mandates, at a lower cost.feedback

The American people voted for his vision. More than any other single person in our country right now, he is in sync with the national mood. If folks want to go their own way, maybe they should run for president.feedback

People are more optimistic, the stock market's rising, companies are deciding to build, folks look at him approving the Keystone XL pipeline. He said he wanted to create jobs. I think there's a sense that he's working hard to create jobs and I think that's incredibly positive. Those are distractions, and it's dwelled upon; I particularly don't care about it.feedback

It has been a Republican principle that power is best held by individuals and states, not the federal government. If you can say to a blue-state senator who's really invested in supporting Obamacare, you can keep Obamacare but why force it upon us, we think that helps us get to 60.feedback

Every single nominee has had different positions than the president. I'm ok with it.feedback
