Skip to comments.Surprise, surprise: Republicans stalling on Obamacare repeal
Posted on 12/01/2016 4:19:25 PM PST by Sean_Anthony
The myth that a complete replacement package has to be in place the moment Obamacare is repealed refuses to die
First congressional Republicans said they couldnt repeal Obamacare because they didnt have full control of Congress.
Then when they gained control of both chambers of Congress congressional Republicans said they couldnt repeal Obamacare because they didnt control the White House.
What do you think?
The grubering of America BEGAN with the GOP.
Obama took credit, but it BEGAN with Romney,
now lauded by Mr. Trump as possible SOS.
I think you are close to lying.
What do you mean delay? You don’t know anymore than anyone else about the future. It may be the exact right thing to dismantle Obamacare over a certain period of time.
I think you better choose more honesty in your postings.
Of course they’re stalling. They can’t do anything until there’s a president who will sign the repeal. Until 12pm on January 20th, Obola will just veto any bill to repeal.
What? The changing of the guard hasn’t even happened yet.
Geesh, Get a damn life.
There is a counter argument of “if you repeal Obozocare how do you clean up the mess it created?”
OTOH, why not just end it, and let the market work it out.
It wouldn’t come as any surprise if the Uniparty RINO’s didn’t fully repeal Obamacare, but all that’s out there now are rumors. Don’t post such an easy target for the socialists to call fake news.
It’s no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention.
The GOP establishment has been assisting the Democrats every step of the way including violating the Constitution by going along with placing the Kenyanesian Usurper in an office the Constitution says he may not hold.
His father was a foreign national and he is not a natural born citizen as a consequence, he even admitted he was born a British subject.
One cannot be anything else and a natural born citizen.
The only change will be in the White House,
Graham and McCain are already working against Trump.
The GOPEs still control Congress.
Ryan is trying to strip “America First” language from the water bill being worked on.
They will fight Trump harder than we ever saw them fight Obama.
The sad fact of the matter is that majority of (R)s are crony capitalists who are fully bribed/on board with the fascistic idea of compulsory commerce. The plebes pay tribute to corporations, the corporations line the pockets of of politicians, the politicians promise to “do something” about corruption and the country keeps swirling the drain.
How about an executive order repeal. That should help the hurry up on a replacement bill.
What ever they do, it had better be done before the 2018 election.
According to Chief Justice Roberts Obamacare is a tax so any tax can be rescinded by the House budget. If they don”t Trump doesn’t have to sign it until it is. OTOH the gutless Pubie Mods may want that to happen giving them cover and leaving Trump holding the bag in their eyes.
“OTOH, why not just end it, and let the market work it out.”
because the “market” has already been nearly destroyed by obamacare.
I think they should wait until Trump is President so Obama doesn’t veto it again.
They’d better go with the ones that brung ‘em or they will be looking for other jobs.
If the RINOS wanted to get rid of it, they could have stood their ground with Cruz when he did his filibuster.
But they were “afraid they’d be blamed” for the shutdown.
With Trump’s election as my proof, I can say the RINOS were wrong about that.
