Will Republicans Weasel out of Repealing Obamacare?

In the lead up to the November 2016 elections, Republicans running for Congress were nearly universally saying they’d Repeal Obamacare on Day One of a Trump presidency.

But now, some establishment Republicans are backing away from “Repeal and Replace” to now focus on “Repairing” the so-called “Affordable” Care Act.

Last week Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), head of the Senate Finance Committee said the GOP wanted to “try and repair the law.”

Even with a Republican White House, U.S. House, and U.S. Senate, this shift in tone could signal some early concessions to the Democrat minority.

If Republicans back off on Obamacare repeal — arguably their biggest campaign promise from 2016 — there’s no telling what they could concede on next.

Without continued pressure from their constituents to make good on Obamacare repeal, we could quickly see the political landscape shift like it did a decade ago after a Republican-controlled government passed massive entitlement expansion.

That ended up setting the stage for President Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi to take the reins in Washington, D.C.

  1. I keep telling people that the RINOs are the problem… Those idiots keep the Republicans losing because they never do what they say they would do.. And too often many will respond with for the reason, “We can’t change anything..” And then they keep on voting for these idiot RINOs.. The People CAN change the way Washington works, but they have to vote against the RINOs in the PRIMARIES by electing true conservatives… We should start a petition to have the RINOs removed or else the RINOs will continue until they eventually kill the party, which is exactly what will happen If the Republican agenda isn’t passed during the Trump administration… As an Obamacare recipient my healthcare went down, not up! I wish we could have our old capitalist system back!! that is all that we need… My sister is a student teacher and she has two daughters to raise, and her husband is a complete dead beat, as a result she has to pay the fine for Obamacare… Obamacare punishes the poor folk by trapping them in perpetuity in poverty… We need to return to our capitalist ways or this nation will be undone…
    You can’t expect money to be given for doing nothing or else it will become worthless, but gee, people can be quite stupid when they want to be.. Man up, America, throw out the cowards you have as representatives and senators if they won’t comply with your needs… WE Need our capitalist healthcare back, which means Obamacare has to go out the window, and in to the trash where it belongs! The two can’t co-exist! Obamacare must die!

  2. If the Republicans back away from repealing Obamacare , the right will abandon them completely . They were voted in for that purpose day 1 , as the President campaigned on . Do not abandon what every Republican vote that has been cast over the last 6-8 years go to waist , by abandoning the repeal approach of Obamacare . With Trump in the White House you now have what you said you had to have to make it happen . If you back away now from this pledge , you will be viewed as a Coward and Liar , and you show that your intentions are not True or in the best interest of America . We will stand with you as long as you stand with the voters that put you in power to represent us. But turn on us and watch out , because we will be coming for you. The Games are over . Time to Rebuild this country ,and we need leaders to do this now…….

  3. When Nancy Pelosi , opens her mouth , she spews lies and exaggerations. Eventually the left will see her for her true colors . Her days are now numbered and I think she knows it .
