Are Republicans Throwing In The Towel On Obamacare?


This morning I read in the paper an interview with Rep. Richard Hanna, a NY RINO, and said Obamacare is the law of the land so they should just try to fix it. I expected as much from him, but now according to Erik Erickson it’s beginning to look like Republican leadership is throwing in the towel on trying to repeal the disastrous law.

The Business Roundtable, which has a great relationship with Republican Leaders, is now listing Obamacare as an entitlement worth preserving.

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former economic advisor to John McCain and who opposed passage of Obamacare, has started a think tank premised on keeping, but fixing, Obamacare. Holtz-Eakin has the ear of Republican leaders. In 2009, Mitch McConnell appointed him to the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.

The Chamber of Commerce is declaring it will work to fix, not repeal, Obamacare. In fact, just last week the head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said, “The administration is obviously committed to keeping the law in place, so the chamber has been working pragmatically to fix those parts of Obamacare that can be fixed.”

Concurrent to this, the Chamber of Commerce has begun funding candidates to beat conservatives in Republican primaries.

Read the whole thing. And make sure you only send donations to, or volunteer for, conservative campaigns. No more support or money for the RINOs. What good are they? There’s a shortage of jobs, so what do they want to do? Bring in more low skilled workers. Obamacare is making millions of people losing their insurance, so what do they want to do? Preserve Obamacare. Are they trying to lose elections? Good grief.
