Repeal and replace or just Repeal? Well, I, for one, vote for the latter. It is my opinion that Republicans, and President Trump, should not only overturn ObamaCare, but they should do it in the same style in which it was passed — by changing the rules of the Senate to a simple majority.
Why should such a drastic measure be taken? Because of the draconian measures Democrats employed.
During the 2008 Presidential election cycle, then Candidate Barack Hussein Obama promised the healthcare discussions would be the most transparent in the history of the country. He even went so far as to say the debates would be televised on C-Span.
But it was all a lie! Democrats had secret meetings shutting out any and all Republicans from engaging in the discussion.
Republicans wanted to debate whether or not it was a good idea for the Federal government to get involved in healthcare. Democrats, who had a majority in the House and a super-majority in the Senate didn’t want to hear it.
For the Democrat majority, it was a done deal. Democrats decreed they were going to work out the finer points of the legislation without any input from Republicans.
In the video below, former CNN reporter Jack Cafferty’s hits the nail on its proverbial head with his observations. (THIS IS A MUST WATCH!)
As already noted, they changed the rules in the Senate to a simple majority. They also promised that Americans, who already had health insurance, could keep their policy and their doctor. Over and over again Obama and his aides touted everyone’s monthly premiums would decrease. And to top it off, they promised the bill would reduce the Federal budget deficit. And again, it was all a lie!
The American people, and Republicans in particular, need to remember the way Democrats shoved the mislabeled “Affordable Care Act” down the American people’s throat.
Poll after poll showed a vast majority of the public didn’t want the federal government messing around with health care. Why? That’s an easy question. It is because the federal government doesn’t have a good record when it comes to most things. Every time they stick their nose where it doesn’t belong they seem to make matters worse.
Here is what Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell need to learn, don’t worry about being fair. Democrats weren’t concerned with being fair when they passed the UNaffordable Care Act (a.k.a. ObamaCareLESS!)
Jack Cafferty was correct when he called ObamaCare “crap.” Republicans need to get their heads out of their hind end, pull the lever and flush the toilet.
