Democrat House Minority Leader, and living fossil, Nancy Pelosi predicts Republicans won’t repeal Obamacare.
Pelosi told reporters that Republican divisions will help keep Obamacare on the books. She said many Republicans who want to repeal it, also want to keep some parts alive. Like forcing insurance companies to issue policies despite pre-existing conditions.
If Republicans go that route, she says, more unhealthy people would be insured causing the cost of Obamacare to “skyrocket.” She bets Republicans don’t want to take that chance.
I don’t know where this woman or fossil, has been. She obviously doesn’t know Obamacare costs have already skyrocketed. And insurance rolls are already filled with more “unhealthy” people while many healthy people are opting to pay the fine so they don’t have to comply. People already have sticker-shock over Obamacare which is why they want it gone.
On election night, many Republicans some as surprised as Democrats that Trump won said they understood the meaning of his victory. “No excuses.” No excuses on fixing immigration. No excuses securing the borders. No excuses on creating a strong economy for job growth. And especially no excuses for getting rid of Obamacare.
Republicans know the stakes. If Obamacare stays their jobs are gone. That tends to matter to politicians. Don’t doubt me.
