Gov. Ducey defends support for Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal Obamacare


A study from the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities indicated that Arizona would suffer an annual loss of $1.6 billion by 2026. Ducey noted that the estimate came from a “left-wing or left leaning organization that has a real stake in maintaining the status quo.”

Ducey stressed that the main concern is repealing Obamacare, which he thinks the deciding issue during the elections over the past eight years. Additionally, he pointed out, “You can’t even call it a health care system” that delivers a product or service.

Furthermore, he criticized Obamacare as a system that takes care of the insurance providers, pharmaceutical companies, and hospitals. It “leaves patients with an insurance card the health care system won’t accept,” stated Ducey.
