…it doesn’t repeal Obamacare and offer a balanced budget.
Republicans in the House are worried that repealing Obamacare without a Republican-designed health care plan will lose some seats in the mid-term elections in 2018. Let me be clear; Republicans should be terrified of what will happen if they DON’T repeal Obamacare, with or without a replacement.
House Republicans told us they need a majority in 2010 so they could repeal Obamacare. They offered repeal bills but claimed that Harry Reid wouldn’t let the repeal legislation be introduced in the Senate. Thus, Senate Republicans told us that THEY need a majority to repeal Obamacare — we gave it to them in 2014. Then, they complained that President Obama would just veto whatever repeal legislation they offered. Republicans said they need the Presidency to repeal Obamacare — we gave Republicans a majority in both chambers of Congress and the Oval Office.
What has the GOP Congress done since they started their session? Fretted about an Obamacare repeal, tried to reduce transparency, and offered a budget which adds close to $10 trillion dollars in debt. Oh, and Congressman Duncan Hunter ripped down a painting in the House office building. Yeah…the painting is pretty offensive, but we want you to cut the size and scope of government.
Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, this isn’t last decade. Y’all may have had fun being tax collectors for the welfare state, but you campaigned on promises to repeal Obamcare, balance the budget, and cut the size and scope of the federal government.
The tea party movement is very much alive. We aren’t holding demonstrations anymore; we are just voting silently. Do NOT test us on this or you WILL be out of power.
