The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday concerns the repeal – or lack thereof – of Obamacare. The Republican Party claimed that they needed to have the U.S. House of Representatives in order to exert power. The people gave the House to them. The party then said that they needed the Senate to have any real effect. The people gave the Senate to them. Then they wanted the White House, and the people gave it to them. Donald Trump has been in office for almost six months, and Obamacare has not yet been repealed. The people are understandably upset and are demanding to know the reason.
Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) recently gave the best reason for the delay. Toomey was asked a question by an ABC news anchor about the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, at a recent town hall. The Senator bluntly said, “I didn’t expect Donald Trump to win. I think most of my colleagues didn’t. So we didn’t expect to be in this situation.” In other words, Republicans felt that they were free to say whatever the people wanted to hear because they were not worried about actually doing what they said they would do.
This writer is becoming more and more convinced that the current members of Congress – with a few exceptions – are not really interested in doing the will of the people. Apparently, it is time to replace Republicans in Congress in order to help President Trump drain the swamp. This writer is very anxious to vote Alaska’s RINO, Senator Lisa Murkowski, out of office!
