According to the Washington Post, Republicans are having a ‘devil of a time’ about repealing Obamacare. The Post claims the idea of government health care is “suddenly in vogue.”
Okay, let’s review the timeline. Obamacare passed in March 2010, without a single Republican vote. In November 2010, Republicans won the House back because the American people wanted Obamacare repealed. But. Republicans said they needed control of the Senate. So in 2014, the American people voted in a Republican Senate. But: No dice. Republicans said they needed the White House, too.
So in 2016, Obamacare was an election issue. Again. Hillary Clinton promised to keep it. Obama begged voters to continue his agenda, including Obamacare, through Hillary. Americans went to the polls and Republicans kept the House and Senate. Donald Trump, who promised to repeal Obamacare, won the presidency.
Now, with the repeal of Obamacare within reach with the legislative moves already underway we’re told voters “suddenly” want it to stay. yeah. According to the Washington Post, “Americans have suddenly decided that they’re pretty cool with the government being involved in their health care, after all.”
This comes after Obama and Democrats held strategy meetings. Followed by protests in liberal cities. And a “sudden” surge of pro-Obamacare stories and polls.
So, Republicans. Here’s your choice. Ignore the Democrat-controlled Drive-By Media, or ignore your own voters. But know this. If you don’t repeal Obamacare this time you are going to be repealed the next change people have.
