I hope this is #FAKENEWS, but I am betting it is not.


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

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.
I hope these MORONS are exposed to the public, and voted into retirement at the mail room at Moelis and Company.
You are there to represent the will of the people and hiding behind ’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.’ – is BOLOGNA.
You construct the replacement, you face the music of criticism, you amend the bill, you keep it small, you construct the repeal, and BOTH become a single bill. You do this THIS YEAR.
If you cannot do that, if you resort to the old ways, BAD THINGS ARE COMING

This is not the old public.
Left or Right, EVERYONE is pissed off, and everyone is out of patience.

Because the GOP never intended to repeal it in the first place. So they spent 8 years paying lip service to "repeal", never bothering to make a plan to replace, safe in the knowledge the elevation of Hillary would protect both Obamacare and themselves. Now they're shittin' bricks because they have no excuses and no plan.

The GOP goes like this:

We can't do anything until we have the House...

We can't do anything until we have the Senate...

We cant do anything until we have the White House...

We can't do anything.
