The Republican rebellion in regards to the Obamacare skinny repeal has taken its toll on the party and the political scene as well.
As far as news goes, Eric Cantor stated that there is already a well-prepared GOP replacement to the Obamacare program.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz also spoke on the topic, saying that the GOP has somewhat jeopardized the replacement of the Obamacare bill and that his colleagues were certain to taste the negative outcome of this.
Take a look:
“There are going to be a great many Americans who tonight feel a sense of betrayal. Feel a sense of betrayal that politicians stood up and made a promise,” Cruz noted.
“I tell you this if you stand up and campaign and say, we’re going to repeal Obamacare and you vote for Obamacare, those are not consistent,” Cruz said. “And the American people are entirely justified in saying, any politician who told me that and voted the other way, didn’t tell me the truth. They lied to me.”
“You know, Senators are going to go home the next few weeks. They’re going to go home to their states. And they’re going to face their constituents. They’re going to have hard questions of people who look them in the eyes and say, ‘Why did you lie to me?’” Cruz explained.
Cruz mentioned that the Obamacare repeal will need to get done sooner rather than later.
“I believe we’ll come back after all of the victory laps by the Democrats, all of the media exultations, I believe we will come back and we will honor our promise,” Cruz said.
As long as there is breath in my body, I will be fighting for the working men and women of this country that have been hurt by Obamacare, and I believe it will be repealed. No party can remain in power by lying to the American people. And I hope and pray that our party doesn’t try to do that …”
The GOP needs to get a grip and stop indulging the Democrats’ efforts to keep the Obamacare active. Otherwise, we basically allow them to win, while hurting our suffering citizens.
