Appallingly pathetic. For eight years Republicans promised voters they would dismantle Obamacare. They took in millions upon millions of political donation dollars on that promise. They ran on it. They were elected and re-elected on it.
And now some of them are breaking it.
Exhibit one of this two-faced politicking is Nevada Republican Senator Dean Heller who has now gone on record stating he will effectively stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Democrats to protect the failing Obamacare debacle.
Heller isn’t worried about helping Americans who need a failing healthcare system to be overhauled – a need made more urgent by the disaster that is Obamacare. No, all Senator Heller cares about is his re-election in 2018.
In 2010 and 2011 Heller told Nevada voters he was strongly opposed to Obamacare and any expansion of a federal healthcare system. Today he is stating he opposes any reduction of the federal healthcare system. Just another say one thing and do another (or do nothing) politician.
And he’s not alone. Susan Collins of Maine and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana have also indicated a desire to protect much of the current Obamacare disaster.
It is one thing to be a Republican senator stating opposition to the current Senate healthcare reform bill because you feel the bill does too little in scrapping the Obamacare mess. (Such as senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul) But to be a Republican senator who is now fighting to protect Obamacare?
That is disgusting.
Is it any wonder voters turned to Donald Trump, the most outside of outsider candidates in 2016 to try and fix the disgusting self-serving mess that is Washington D.C.?
Let’s hope Nevada voters send Mr. Heller a very strong message come November 2018 by voting him out. If he’s replaced by a Democrat does it really matter? He’s already standing with them as it is.
