Republican Senators Sell Out, Break Promise to Repeal Obamacare

Wiki

Four Republican senators, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Shelly Moore Capito, and Rob Portman, at the last minute broke their promise to support repeal of Obamacare. Without their support, the Republicans’ seven-year-long promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act is dead on arrival. Murkowski, who represents Alaska, says that repealing the ACA without a clear path forward just creates confusion and uncertainty. [Perhaps Alaska voters should explain to her that repealing Obamacare is the clear path forward they want.] –GEG

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) joined Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) against Republicans’ efforts to repeal Obamacare.

Moderate senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) and Susan Collins (R-ME) came out earlier today against efforts to repeal Obamacare However, Sen. Murkowski voted to repeal Obamacare in 2015.

Sen. Murkowski released a statement on why she opposes a repeal of Obamacare. Murkowksi confessed:

As I’ve been saying, the Senate should take a step back and engage in a bipartisan process to address the failures of the ACA and stabilize the individual markets. That will require members on both sides of the aisle to roll up their sleeves and take this to the open committee process where it belongs. The individual market in states like Alaska and in rural communities across America has continued to deteriorate since we last voted to repel the Affordable Care Act. Alaskans have seen their premiums increase over 200 percent, only one insurer remains on our individual market, and the state was forced to enact a costly reinsurance program to keep our sole remaining provider from leaving. At the same time, the coverage offered on the exchange has become coverage in name only for too many Alaskans with premiums close to $1,000 a month on average and many facing deductibles approaching $10,000. Repealing the ACA without a clear path forward just creates confusion and greater uncertainty. As I stated earlier this year, I cannot vote to proceed to repeal the ACA without reform that allows people the choice they want, the affordability they need and the quality of care they deserve.

The Alaskan senator opposed the Senate healthcare bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), that would have repealed parts of Obamacare and replaced it with reforms to Medicaid. It also would have repealed most of the Affordable Care Act’s taxes. Now, Murkowski opposes repealing Obamacare because Republicans would not have an immediate replacement to the Affordable Care Act.

It is possible that Trump may be the preferred candidate of the deep state because he will have far more support of the American people than Biden would when the President declares martial law. That IS the end game of the deep state. Look up the definition of ‘controlled opposition’ and read it twice.

The War on Cops Is NOT About Racism

The reality is that there is more crime in minority neighborhoods, more need for police intervention, and more exposure to the possibility of excessive violence. The disintegration of support for police is a crushing blow particularly to those living in black communities where crime rates are soaring.
