Far and away the most popular song on every juke box in every watering hole in the nation’s capitol for the last four decades is The Potomac Two-Step, as performed by Little Johnny McCain and the RINOS.
Here’s how it goes:
Time to get elected, step to the right, put your hands in the air and “who you gonna call?”
Time to head back to DC, turn yourself around
Grab your favorite democrat by the hand and dough-see-dough.
Ain’t nobody cuttin’ in, it’s our party and we’ll lie if we want to.
The GOP elite have entrenched themselves firmly in the deep pockets of the big money interests who grease the wheels of corruption that propel Washington. They’ve made it painfully clear that they will give Trump no help, as he is an outsider. The normal procedure for both parties on any important legislation is to come up just short of the votes to move anything. That way they can go back to their home districts or states and proclaim they fought for it, but, darn it, the votes just weren’t there. We need more people, so we can act like we’re gonna change anything.
Only democrats do that, and it took billions in bribes to get Obamacare shoved through. Now that it is law, it’s become painfully obvious that republicans lack the will to repeal it. They think you can get rid of the mandates and the government interference while keeping the perqs, like children insured until age 26 and covering pre-existing conditions, the costliest parts of this disaster. Obama knew, like a drug dealer, give them the free stuff up front. Then, like boiling a frog, turn up the heat without it noticing until it dies.
Face it, Republicans Have No Intention of Repealing Obamacare
“if you’ve got that anger working for you, you’re gonna let it be”
What’s happening with Obamacare repeal, you ask? That is a fantastic question. But at this point, it’s quite clear that Republicans who campaigned on repealing the ACA have zero intention of doing so now that the opportunity has presented itself.
Seven Republican Senators voted against a so-called “clean repeal” bill Wednesday. Sens McCain, Murkowski, Capito, Lamar Alexander, Collins, Portman, and Heller are responsible for tanking the latest repeal effort. The bill offered no replacement but promised to delay full repeal, giving lawmakers time to figure out the rest.
The bill failed after the world fell apart Tuesday, blaming Sen. McCain for single-handedly sentencing millions to certain death because he had the audacity to vote to open up debate…for a bill he voted against less than 24-hours later
McCain, RINOs vote with Dems to keep federal funding for abortion
With the amendment what was just shot down in flames suppose to have seen ObamaCare ending in two years, this is seen as a real setback for President Trump, despite Republicans having a majority in the Senate.
Among the provisions that today’s vote might have ended would be federal funding for abortions.
But thanks to the likes of Arizona senator John McCain, unborn children will continue to literally be ripped limb from limb, courtesy of the US taxpayers.
[CtH: Apparently, my optimism about his brain tumor making him concerned about final judgment was misplaced.]
Republicans repeal and replace the Tea Party
Even when Republicans control the White House and both houses of Congress, liberalism remains the default ideology of the federal government.
A Republican Senate could not muster even 50 votes for the full repeal of Obamacare’s taxes and spending. Six Republican senators who had voted for repeal in 2015, when the party was merely pretending it was possible, flipped on Wednesday rather than deliver.
ObamaCare’s GOP Preservers
Congress had passed and sent to Barack Obama’s desk a similar measure in 2015, with support from every current Senate Republican except Susan Collins of Maine. This time seven voted no, including Rob Portman of Ohio and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, who aren’t up for re-election until 2022 and 2020, respectively. If you’re going to renege on your political promises, better to do it early, we suppose.
Perkins: I Was Told the GOP’s 2015 Obamacare Repeal Was Only ‘a Messaging Vote’
Perkins said the FRC is for a clean repeal of Obamacare. “That’s what we advocated for from the beginning,” he said.
“We worked back in 2015 to get that repeal through. I worked with Majority Whip Steve Scalise to help craft the language on Planned Parenthood and get that into reconciliation,” said Perkins.
Added Perkins, “It passed, went to the president, and I’ve had a couple of conversations with some senators who said, ‘Well, that was a messaging vote.’ I said, ‘Really? You didn’t communicate that to the American people.’”
2016 Ad: ‘John McCain Leading The Fight To STOP OBAMACARE’
That was back when he needed the votes of Arizonans to put him back in the Senate.
Those days are gone. Yesterday, he joined Democrats in sinking the Republican bill to repeal Obamacare. The measure was a clean repeal with a 2 year window to replace the ACA.
So here’s the ad McCain ran just prior to the election in AZ in 2016. He slams his Dem opponent for supporting Obamacare
Mika: Too Late to Repeal Obamacare, “Whether You Were for it or Not”
As Ronald Reagan said, “a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.”
Levin: GOP ‘Lied Their Way Into Office,’ Perpetrated ‘Greatest Hoax in Modern Politics’
“Here comes rationing, long waiting periods, and massive red-tape,” said Mark Levin in all caps on. “The Republicans lied their way into office in what is the greatest hoax in modern politics.”
Levin’s comments came after seven Republican senators joined Democrats in voting no on a “clean repeal” of Obamacare promoted by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. on Wednesday.
