The American people believed this promise and the Republicans won control of the House, which gave them a perch to stage the effort to keep their promise. The Senate and the Executive were still controlled by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) so anything the House did was only for show. Never the less, the House voted more than 30 times to repeal all or part of the Affordable Care Act.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence said January 4, 2017 that repealing the Affordable Care Act was part of keeping promises Republicans -- including President-elect Donald Trump -- made on the campaign trail.
The Obamacare repeal is “going to start happening in just a few days,” Vice President Mike Pence promised a crowd gathered last Friday at Blaine’s Farm and Fleet Distribution Center in Janesville, Wisc.
The goal, he said, is to “eliminate all its mandates and taxes and intrusion into your personal lives and into the lives of your business.”
To repeal something — usually a law, ordinance or public policy — is to take it back. Synonyms for repeal would be to annul, countermand, lift, overturn, rescind, reverse, revoke, vacate.
Repeal does not mean to revise, alter, or modify. This is what Paul Ryan and his establishment are doing with Obamacare 2.0. This is clearly another Republican Establishment “bait and switch.”
We who are Freedom Loving Americans are vehemently opposed to Speaker Ryan’s “Obamacare 2.0” bill. We do support Rep. Jim Jordan’s decision to introduce repeal only legislation that passed last term. We are proud of the House and Senate members who still plan to keep their campaign promises. Unfortunately, some of them were committing fraud against the American people, voting for repeal when they knew the senate would not pass it and Obama would not sign it. Now they’re supporting a different variety of Obamacare.
Repeal means to eliminate any and everything about Obamacare. It is, in any form, necessary for the transformation to a Marxist totalitarian state called for by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats). The replace should be to return any and all health coverage and health care to the private marketplace. Yes, a bill to allow competition across state lines would be appropriate. Yes, a law that allows kids to stay on their parents plan until 26 is certainly acceptable.
Even a provision in the tax code to allow for health coverage savings plans is acceptable. What is not acceptable is The Republican Establishment once again going against their explicit promises with another “bait and switch.”
