The Republicans in the Senate, as a whole, did what was best for the nation. They voted to start Obamacare repeal talks. However, there were two notable traitors who stuck with their Democratic best friends and went against the will of the people.If it weren’t for Vice President Mike Pence casting yet another tie breaking vote, the ruckus would have been even worse. Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski have been with the Democrats in keeping us saddled with the Obamacare disaster since the beginning.Collins and Murkowski are in the ranks multiple moderate Senate Republicans worried about logical Medicaid reductions in any Obamacare repeal and replace.
In separate statements last week, both women were against the attempt by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to pass legislation repealing Obamacare without new legislation in place.Murkowski, who supported a Senate bill repealing Obamacare in 2015 that was vetoed by then-President Barack Obama, the law’s treasonous advocate, said the Senate should “take a step back and engage in a bipartisan process to address the failures of [Obamacare] and stabilize the individual markets.”
Collins, who did not vote for the 2015 repeal, showing that her allegiance is to the Democrats and deep state, said that Obamacare is “so interwoven in our health care system that to repeal it completely with no idea what it’s going to be replaced with is not the right approach.”
Which is completely incorrect, but hey, it’s only the American people who have to suffer right?
As for potential political consequences of their votes, Murkowski will not be up for re-election until 2022. Collins’ turn will come in 2020, though she has not ruled out stepping down to run for governor of Maine next year.
Leave it to loser RINOs to try and ruin our agenda. The agenda that the American people voted for.
