President Biden’s Build Back Better plan did not receive a Senate vote before the Christmas recess, but is expected to reappear in January. Indiana Representative Jim Banks is warning that the legislation would lead to roughly 2 million people losing their employer-based medical insurance. 

Representative Banks, who is chairman of the minority’s study committee on the bill, wrote in a memo that the current majority party has “always sought to make as many people dependent on the federal government for health care as possible, while eliminating every other option that could drive down prices in the competitive marketplace. 

The congressman continued, “By wresting control away from doctors and patients, the … healthcare vision puts the onus on corporate and government bureaucrats who care more about the bottom line than they do about the health of our constituents.” 

He said the study committee’s review revealed that the bill would “massively expand Obamacare subsidies, giving wealthy Americans access to them, while undermining the ability for Americans to get coverage at their job.” The expanded Obamacare payments would “result in nearly 2 million people losing the health insurance they receive from their job, forcing them to get worse care that costs more.”
