More Republicans bail on Obamacare repeal

It's Time To Face Facts
Socialized Medicine is Here to Stay

  • The GOP never had any intention of repealing Obamacare. There is just too much Federal cash in the slush fund and everyone wants to put their snout in that trough of money.
  • What the Republicans will try to pass is Romneycare. Better known as Obamacare lite.

(Daily Caller)  -  Three more Republican senators announced their opposition to the Senate health care bill Tuesday, bringing the total number of defectors to nine.
Republicans Jerry Moran of Kansas, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Rob Portman of Ohio issued statements of opposition soon after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced leadership would postpone the vote until after the July 4 recess. The GOP leadership was pressed into the postponement following significant internal opposition.
Three GOP Senators had stated definitively that they would vote against the bill in its current form as of the postponement, but that number quickly multiplied Tuesday.
Moran announced his opposition to the bill via Twitter after reportedly facing significant pressure from constituents wary of the bill’s significant cuts to Medicaid.
Portman, who has previously voiced concerns about the fledgling Senate Obamacare repeal, expressed his outright opposition to the bill in a joint statement with Capito Tuesday afternoon.
“I continue to have real concerns about the Medicaid policies in this bill, especially those that impact drug treatment at a time when Ohio is facing an opioid epidemic,” Portman said.
Capito echoed Portman’s concerns, citing decreased funding for drug treatment and cuts to Medicaid as a major obstacle preventing her support of the bill.
