Since 1981 Republicans have proven that they lack fiscal responsibility and fail our nation’s economic future. They do exhibit some talent regarding the use of tax money; they use it for their own purposes and those purposes are frequently opposed to the welfare of our nation’s people.
As Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell attempted to rush Trumpcare to a vote, the American people became aware that it would harm millions of Americans and cost lives. In an attempt to counteract the facts, they began a misleading advertising campaign. They used funds from the Health and Human Services Department which were intended to encourage enrollment in Obamacare to create a public relations campaign to repeal it.
This reminds me of the ‘bridge to nowhere.’ Republicans are unable to use taxpayer money effectively; simply put, they waste it.
In this situation, attempting to sell their deplorable “anti-healthcare bill,” they already know that the American people now favor Obamacare and denounce Trumpcare.
Now for a little honesty. Republicans in the House attempted to repeal Obamacare for seven years, and had no plan to replace it. They took 60 votes and all of them failed. Trumpcare was constructed in a rash manner with input from Republicans only. In addition, women were not allowed to participate. Not a single healthcare expert was included in its composition. This entire process has been a smokescreen. There was never a real plan to replace Obamacare. The goal all along was simply to take away healthcare from 32 million Americans.
Republicans are desperate to harm the legacy of President Obama, who will be remembered as on of the greatest presidents of all time. He inherited a nation in ruin, and under his leadership it rose from the ashes. Unfortunately his unqualified successor is attempting to destroy our nation once again. As the Geico gecko might say; “if you’re a Republican president, that’s what you do.”
Please re-post; thank you.
