Obamacare

Why is the GOP folding a winning hand on health care reform?

One thing that never ceases to amaze is the Republican Party’s uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

When the Democrats have control of the levers of power they work ruthlessly to get their agenda passed, even if it means using arcane budget rules to pass a health care bill with a simple majority in the Senate, the contents of which were so secret we were told they would have to “pass the bill to see what was in it”.

RLC National Board Votes To Rescind Poliquin Endorsement After Obamacare Vote

WASHINGTON, DC - The National Board of the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) voted Thursday to rescind its endorsement of Representative Bruce Poliquin, R-Maine 2nd CD, after he voted against the repeal of Obamacare.

Poliquin was one of only three Republicans to vote against the repeal because, he claimed, "more than 60,000 Mainers have invested their time and energy in choosing health care plans that work for their families." Poliquin said he would only vote to repeal Obamacare if Republicans had a replacement bill ready to vote on at the same time.
