Why are most of the Republicans in Congress so spineless?

July 15, 2017 By Patricia McCarthy

Why indeed? Obamacare was passed in 2009 without a single Republican vote. Everyone who paid attention to its details knew that it was designed to fail, miserably. Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber bragged about how getting it passed depended on the stupidity of the American people.

 But people would not be able to keep their own doctors as promised. No one's premiums went down by $2,500. They all went up and up and up. Those who are paying for it cannot afford to use it because the deductibles are too high. It is a monstrosity of catastrophic proportions...........For eight years, Republicans have campaigned for office in order to repeal it. The House voted repeatedly to repeal it..........

Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania let the cat of the bag as to the Republicans' pathetic inaction at a recent town hall: "We did not expect Trump to win."  So these Republicans who have been promising to repeal Obamacare once they achieved maximum power were just faking it.  They had no plan to actually repeal Obamacare, and it appears now that they never had any intention to do it.

They did not really want to wield the power they now have!  They preferred being underdogs; they are, most of them, lazy........They are cowards, too, when it comes to defending their president.........

They are excellent at one thing: capitulation to the left.  These yellow-bellies who are pretend conservatives need to either step up to the plate or resign and let new and legitimate conservatives take their places........... More
