MUST READ: Chaffetz Just Said The Most Ridiculous Thing To Justify The GOP’s New Healthcare Plan

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Uth) decided to compare having health insurance to buying a new iPhone, saying that Americans have to choose between purchasing a new iPhone or paying for health insurance.

Chaffetz appeared on CNN’s “New Day” a day after House Republicans unveiled their plan to replace ObamaCare. “You know what, Americans have choices. And they’ve got to make a choice,” he said.

“And so maybe, rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want to spend hundreds of dollars on, maybe they should invest in their own healthcare.”

Republicans’ new health plan, called American Health Care Act (AHCA), will cost millions to lose their health insurance

The AHCA would roll back funding for the Affordable Care Act(ACA)’s Medicaid expansion and shift the tax credits that help Americans pay for health insurance.

Chaffetz said the plan eliminates parts of ObamaCare that “people said that they don’t want,” referring to the individual mandate, which requires people to purchase health coverage or pay a fine.

According to Many health policy experts, if the new plan is enacted, it would lead to millions of Americans losing their health coverage.
