BREAKING: Obamacare Replacement Fails – Repeal-Only Dead Too

BREAKING: Obamacare Replacement Fails – Repeal-Only Dead Too

Well, it looks like the Republican’s replacement for Obamacare has officially failed in the Senate. Many won’t agree with me, but I personally think that was a good thing. Then President Trump, Vice President Pence and Mitch McConnell came out and called for a clean repeal of Obamacare. And this is where we see the weasels come to light in the Republican Party. Because if they had truly wanted Obamacare repealed, they would repeal first and take the President’s offer of a two-year period to sort out a replacement. But… the repeal-only move is now dead too. That is totally unacceptable. This has to be resolved and I think they can still do it.

Make no mistake here… it’s not the true conservatives like Mike Lee, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul who are the bad guys here. It is the progressive RINOs like Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and Shelley Moore Capito that are the problem. They were the ones who said they could not stomach a full repeal. And because we have let Democrats pretending to be Republicans in among us, this is the result. A stalemate. Meanwhile, healthcare since Obama dicked with it, has jumped 140 percent. Some people are paying over $1,500 a month in premiums with a monster $6,500 deductible. No one can afford that.

From Bloomberg:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s new proposal to simply repeal Obamacare appears to be dead less than 24 hours after he dropped his replacement plan for lack of support among fellow Republicans.

GOP Senators Susan Collins, Shelley Moore Capito and Lisa Murkowski said Tuesday they’ll oppose a repeal of the Affordable Care Act. McConnell said late Monday the Senate would vote on a repeal with a two-year delay to give Congress time to agree on a replacement, but he could afford to lose no more than two Republican votes to advance the measure.

“We’ll let Obamacare fail” and then Democrats may want to agree on a replacement, President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House. “I’m not going to own it.”

Repealing the law now and then hoping for a replacement “would create great anxiety for individuals who rely on the ACA,” said Susan Collins of Maine. “I believe it would cause the insurance markets to go into turmoil.” She said she would oppose bringing a repeal bill up for debate. Capito of West Virginia said she would refuse to take up a repeal plan without an adequate replacement as well. “I did not come to Washington to hurt people,” she reportedly said. Murkowski of Alaska also said she wouldn’t vote to take up a repeal-alone measure. “There’s enough chaos and uncertainty already and this would just contribute to it,” Murkowski told reporters. All of that is a lie… they want a bailout for the insurance companies.

It’s the same three RINOs that have been a thorn in our sides forever and now they are trying to extort the Senate. Isn’t it time these three women were booted out of office? Just shameful. Now, Trump will let Obamacare fail before going for a replacement and millions will suffer horrendously because of it. You can’t blame the President here… he’s doing everything he can to fix this. But you can sure blame those three female RINOs.
