The curse of a RINO-infested Congress.

When you have a House of Representatives populated by people like our own cardboard cutout of a Congresswoman, Jaime Herrera, and controlled by RINO Paul Ryan, this is the variety of cowardice we should have expected to see.

It is absolutely unacceptable.

Obamacare has never been accepted by the American people.  It has ALWAYS been a lie wrapped in leftist dishonesty and the costs have exploded.  Historically, the people of this country have hated it; when premiums exploded back in November, that hatred grew, and no outlier poll from an interested party (The Kaiser Foundation?  Really?)  should change any of that.

The cowards in the House were elected... repeatedly.... to repeal Obamacare.  That does not mean every last vestige of it needs to go, but in the main, REPEAL is what they promised to get the damned job; REPEAL is what they had better, by God, deliver.

But they are RINOs and this sort of thing should have been expected... no matter how unacceptable it is.

Those in the House need to remember: the same people who put the President into his job can throw your butts out of yours.

Right, Barbie?

(The headline is a tad misleading:  the body of the story indicates that SOME Republicans are playing this word game crap.  the headline infers that they ALL are and that everyone accepts it.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  But then, it is being reported by Bloomberg... so maybe this entire thing is just fake news.)

Republicans Rebrand Obamacare Strategy From ‘Repeal’ to ‘Repair’

  • Lawmakers advised to shift to friendlier Obamacare messaging
  • Some try out ‘repair’ as others stick with stronger words
Some Republicans in Congress are starting to talk more about trying to “repair” Obamacare, rather than simply calling for “repeal and replace.”
There’s good reason for that.
The repair language was discussed by Republicans during their closed-door policy retreat in Philadelphia last week as a better way to brand their strategy. Some of that discussion flowed from views that Republicans may not be headed toward a total replacement, said one conservative House lawmaker who didn’t want to be identified.
Using the word repair “captures exactly what the large majority of the American people want,” said Frank Luntz, a prominent Republican consultant and pollster who addressed GOP lawmakers at their retreat.
“The public is particularly hostile about skyrocketing costs, and they demand immediate change,” Luntz said in an e-mail response to questions. “Repair is a less partisan but no less action-oriented phrase that Americans overwhelmingly embrace.”
Republicans are grappling with their party’s desire -- and President Donald Trump’s promise -- to dismantle Obamacare, as well as the political disaster that could ensue if millions of Americans lose coverage as a result of legislation. 
A Jan. 6 Kaiser Family Foundation poll found that 75 percent of Americans either are opposed to Congress repealing Obamacare or want lawmakers to wait until they have a replacement ready before repealing it. While Trump has promised a plan of his own, Republicans have yet to coalesce around any of the plans that have been floated in recent years to end Obamacare while maintaining a stable insurance market.
