All Republicans campaigned and were elected by running on the repeal of the tyrannical, anti-freedom, 2,700-page disaster known as Obamacare, the crippling legislation that has caused millions to lose their doctors, lose their coverage, and caused insurance premiums and deductibles to unnecessarily skyrocket.
Over the past seven-plus years Republicans voted over 50 times to repeal Obamacare, realizing that Obama would veto the bill and therefore rendering their vote absolutely meaningless. However, now that we are blessed with a president who will repeal Obamacare, suddenly there is a change of heart.
On Wednesday, seven RINOs (Republicans-In-Name-Only) shamefully voted against an amendment from Senator Rand Paul that would have phased out Obamacare over a two-year span to give lawmakers the opportunity to craft a replacement (even though they’ve had seven years already to do so).
The straight repeal failed by a 55-45 vote. Those trans-Republican senators who voted with the Democrats to keep Obamacare:
[score]Lamar Alexander [/score](RINO – TN)
[score]Shelley Moore Capito[/score] (RINO – WV)
[score]Susan Collins[/score] (RINO -ME)
[score]Dean Heller[/score] (RINO – NV)
[score]John McCain[/score] (RINO – AZ)
[score]Lisa Murkowski [/score](RINO – AK)
[score]Rob Portman[/score] (RINO – OH)
The Republican Party is useful only when it doesn't matter, and useless when it does matter. Sickening. #Obamacare

Lamar Alexander, Shelley Moore Capito, Dean Heller, John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, and Rob Portman ALL voted for a straight repeal of Obamacare in 2015. Only Susan Collins voted against it.
“Republicans promised to repeal Obamacare, and as we move forward in this process, I urge them to join me in supporting a clean repeal of as much of this disastrous law as possible,” Rand Paul said prior to the vote.
