2 of the 3 Voted for 2015 Repeal Bill Under Obama, Will Vote ‘No’ Under Trump
After Mitch McConnell’s Obamacare 2.0 debacle came crashing down on Monday night, President Donald Trump called for a clean repeal of Obamacare and McConnell quickly got in line after his embarrassing defeat, agreeing to put the 2015 repeal bill up for a vote that passed and was sent to Obama for a veto — the same bill that principled conservative legislators like Ted Cruz (R-TX), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Rand Paul (R-KY), and Mike Lee (R-UT) had been requesting since the 2016 elections.
Not so fast.
On Tuesday, we learned that a trio of RINO (Republican In Name Only) Senators, Shelly Moore Capito (RINO – WV), Susan Collins (RINO – ME), and Lisa Murkowski (RINO – AK) they will vote “no” to repeal Obamacare without another big government, DC-centric scheme in place to further destroy healthcare in America.
The three big government Republicans all made separate statements, with none of the three calling for a free market solution that would truly lower costs, lower premiums, lower deductibles and improve quality.
Instead, the three RINOs argued that even more money should be thrown to prop-up failing Obamacare, which has caused health insurance premiums and deductibles to unnecessarily skyrocketed, leaving millions “covered” by policies that are utterly unaffordable and worthless.
“My position on this issue is driven by its impact on West Virginians. With that in mind, I cannot vote to repeal ObamaCare without a replacement plan that addresses my concerns and the needs of West Virginians,” Senator Shelly Moore Capito said in a statement.
“We can’t just hope that we will pass a replacement within the next two years. Repealing without a replacement would create great uncertainty for individuals who rely on the [Affordable Care Act] and cause further turmoil in the insurance markets,” Senator Susan Collins said in a statement.
“There’s enough chaos and uncertainty already and this would just contribute to it,” Senator Lisa Murkowski told reporters, according to The Hill.
Given the Republicans small 52-48 majority in the Senate, losing three votes would keep Obamacare intact, which is probably the goal of these three anyway, realizing it is failing and that the progressive dream of “single payer” commie care is right around the corner.
As columnist Byron York of the Washington Examiner pointed out, both Murkowski and Capito voted for the 2015 repeal bill (Collins voted “no”) but won’t, now that it matters. President Trump will sign the repeal of Obamacare. The deceivers knew that Obama would veto any attempt to veto his signature legislation. Now that it matters, they’ve changed their tune. At least Susan Collins is a consistent Democrat in the process.

Don’t be fooled by the “R” after their names folks. These are no Republicans.
