President Obama: Republicans driving up healthcare costs

obama-pointing-at-you11During his interview with Vox that was published on Monday, President Obama claimed the Republicans are to blame for rising healthcare costs.

“There's certain areas like drugs, where the fact that Congress — and the Republican Party in particular — has been resistant to letting drugmakers and Medicare negotiate for the lowest price. It results in us paying a lot more than we should.

“Health providers are able to, I think, charge without much fear that somebody's looking over their shoulders and asking, well, why does this cost that much?” Obama said.
