Mike Lee Slams Latest Version of House Non-Repeal Health Care Bill

(Before It's News)

The House bill currently under consideration and that may come to the floor of the House for a vote on March 23, 2017, is not a repeal of Obamacare. I like Paul Ryan. I think he accepted a thankless job he did not want, and not many people are willing to do that, knowing it is going to be a major challenge. I donated to Paul Ryan when he faced that idiot Paul Nehlen in a primary race.

That said, he continues to say the House is going to be “repealing and replacing Obamacare” and that simply is not true. The Affordable Care Act is amended under the current legislation, but it is not repealed. The bill the House is trying to pass has some more conservative members of Congress upset and with good reason. Nearly every day since Barack Obama signed the ACA into law, Republicans have promised its repeal.

Mike Lee was on Fox News and slammed the bill and the charade that it repeals Obamacare. Watch:

What we’ve been promising for seven years is that if Republicans were given the chance to govern we would repeal Obamacare root and branch that’s not what this bill does and that’s what we need to do and that’s why I’m holding out for a vote that actually fulfills that promise.

For the last four years, people like Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, members of the House Freedom Caucus and politicos have been bashed incessantly about repealing Obamacare without the infrastructure to do so. They’ve been on the receiving end of finger-wagging lectures. “We can’t repeal Obamacare until we have a congressional majority and the White House.” 

So what’s the problem? They’ve run out of excuses. What’s next? Are they going to argue Obamacare cannot be repealed without a 60 vote majority in the Senate?

Senators Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Tom Cotton and recently, Ted Cruz are out there telling the truth about the bill in question and deserve praise for doing so, not scorn from the same people who lectured them up until the point the GOP took control of the executive and legislative branches of government.

Do what you promised.
