GOP: Obamacare? Oh man!

mcconnell-paul-ryan-575x430More than a few of them spent the entire election cycle deemphasizing, dodging, trying to ignore or even downright disparaging their party’s eventual nominee.

They knew he couldn’t win.

But he did win, and when he did they spent months in meetings and on the phone trying to recalibrate party strategies for another four years under a Democrat administration.

How could this be happening?

Well, remember the previous election cycle? When they, right up to Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, told us their first order of business was to repeal and replace ObamaCare?

And all but a few didn’t mean a word of it?

Never even had a concerted strategy in place.

WaPo via Drudge:

PHILADELPHIA — Republican lawmakers aired sharp concerns about their party’s quick push to repeal the Affordable Care Act at a closed-door meeting Thursday, according to a recording of the session obtained by The Washington Post.

The recording reveals a GOP that appears to be filled with doubts about how to make good on a long-standing promise to get rid of Obamacare without explicit guidance from President Trump or his administration. The thorny issues with which lawmakers grapple on the tape — including who may end up either losing coverage or paying more under a revamped system — highlight the financial and political challenges that flow from upending the current law.

Senators and House members expressed a range of concerns about the task ahead: how to prepare a replacement plan that can be ready to launch at the time of repeal; how to avoid deep damage to the health insurance market; how to keep premiums affordable for middle-class families; even how to avoid the political consequences of defunding Planned Parenthood, the women’s health-care organization, as many Republicans hope to do with the repeal of the ACA.

It is comforting to know they still hold our interests as their highest priority, though.

“We’d better be sure that we’re prepared to live with the market we’ve created” with repeal, said Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.). “That’s going to be called Trumpcare. Republicans will own that lock, stock and barrel, and we’ll be judged in the election less than two years away.”

Funny he should bring that up.

Republicans, we’re watching.
