After Voting to Gut Obamacare, Curbelo Praises Japan's Universal Health Care System

A note to Miami Rep. Carlos Curbelo's staff: Just stop letting him talk about health care. Earlier this month, the Republican was one of the final swing votes that ensured the American Health Care Act, which cripples Obamacare, passed on to the U.S. Senate. After his constituents excoriated him for trying to rip their health care away, he wrote a condescending, insulting, and lie-ridden op-ed in the Miami Herald calling his critics leftists and crybabies for asking for basic access to health insurance. That did not go over well.

For about a week, Curbelo seemed to get the hint, and kept his mouth shut about the AHCA. But now, Curbelo's back tweeting about health care and praising a country that has a universal health-care program.

After voting to ensure that fewer Americans are able to get health care, Curbelo tweeted about how wonderful and cost-effective Japan's health-care system is. Except Japan's system guarantees universal coverage for all its citizens, imposes tight price-controls on insurers, and outlaws for-profit hospitals, in a deliberate regulatory attempt to cut costs for consumers and guarantee that everyone has access to care.
