Moran, Pompeo called out for Obamacare hypocrisy

Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., “proudly appeared at a publicity event to promote the groundbreaking of a $4.7 million expansion of the Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas last August,” while failing to acknowledge the “$4.7 million came completely from Affordable Care Act discretionary spending,” wrote the Nation’s Lee Fang. And at a town hall last year, Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, pointed to federally funded health facilities such as Hunter Health Clinic and GraceMed in Wichita as great examples of how to care for people who can’t afford health insurance. “Pompeo failed to note that both clinics are actually heavily funded by Obamacare,” Fang wrote, or that “his repeal effort would withdraw funds from health clinics like the ones he praised as examples of the right type of reforms.”
