Blaming Conservatives For Obamacare Repeal Failure Will Not Fly
Now that the attempts to repeal Obamacare are over, there are suggestions that conservative Republicans are responsible for the failure to overturn that bill’s unconstitutional control over the formerly free state of America. But thinking Americans would refute that contention and convincingly put the blame for suffering healthcare patients on its source: Democrats.
So, when the failing and unsupportable Obamacare dies a horrible death and when that disaster causes major disruptions to healthcare in America, especially in the poorest neighborhoods in the nation, the discomfort and illness that will result will be solely pinned to Democrats and liberal, establishment Republicans, not conservative Republicans.
Democrats were the only voters for Obamacare when it was enacted, with not one Republican voting for its passage, and if Democrats, who all of a sudden, following President Trump’s crusade to repeal the Democrat bill, were reported to have admitted that Obamacare had many bad aspects that needed to be fixed, but the bad aspects had, until Donald Trump came along, been ignored and defended by Democrats and Americans had been left to suffer under Obamacare for as long as Obama held Democrat legislators’ careers in the palm of his ruthless hand, if Democrats hadn’t blocked the repeal with their negativism and obscene criticism, necessary changes could have resulted. So much for the alleged compassion of the liberals in the Democrat party. It wasn’t the conservatives who blocked repeal, it was Democrats and the foul being and dark visage of Charles Schumer.
Conservative Republicans opposed the extension of the worst aspects of Obamacare which were being preserved in the failed repeal bill, and held out for the elimination of big-government controls on healthcare, which were only lessened under Ryan’s bill but not reduced enough, and certainly were not eliminated, while Democrats voted for the same old crap of big-government control over the lives of Americans. I salute the conservatives for standing tall and killing the Republican version of Obamacare.
So there’s no escape from blame for Democrats when the current nationalized healthcare system dies an agonizing death, unless the idiots in the Republican establishment allow this escape from blame to happen. And they probably will.
