Outspoken former FOX News host Bill O’Reilly gave a harsh assessment of Republicans in Congress who have failed to keep their seven-year long campaign promise to repeal Obamacare.
Interviewed on Glenn Beck‘s radio program on Friday, where he has been being interviewed weekly recently, O’Reilly said that the “pinheads” in Congress are more concerned about their “gym time” than they are about repealing Obamacare.
“Obamacare legislation is an income redistribution scheme, and that’s what it is,” O’Reilly told Beck. “Taking money out of the pockets of working Americans, anybody making more than $75K, and putting it into the pockets of people who don’t have a lot. That’s what this is,” he contended. So what does he think Congress should do about it? “Would Bill O’Reilly be happy with a simple repeal,

“Yes,” O’Reilly answered.
“There’s no reason to keep Obamacare,” he continued. “If you give the pinheads in Congress two years, maybe they’ll get something done. I would rather see one year, but these people are so inefficient, so incompetent that in one year, they start to shake because, you know, that cuts into their gym time. I mean, it’s outrageous,” a disgusted O’Reilly explained.

Republicans hold advantages in the House of Representative, the U.S. Senate, and the presidency. They deceptively voted over 50 times during the Obama years to repeal Obamacare, knowing full well that Obama would veto any bill that would touch his signature legislation. Now that America has a president who would sign a repeal, they are showing their true colors.
RINO Senator Lamar Alexander told reporters earlier in the week that there were less than 40 (out of 52) Republicans in the Senate who would vote for a clean repeal of Obamacare.
