LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
by Micah J. Fleck
Apparently all is not homogeneous inside the belly of the GOP. According to a new report, GOP insiders are worried about the upcoming repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act:
Leaked recordings from a closed door session during the Republican Party’s retreat in Philadelphia show that the GOP is concerned about Donald Trump’s plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The tapes were sent to The Washington Post on Thursday night. The Post confirmed the authenticity of the recordings, and the quotes attributed to lawmakers.
The Republican lawmakers have a host of concerns over the political fallout from repealing the law because many parts of the law are popular with many people. Rep. Tom McClintock wanted to make sure they got it right because their replacement is “going to be called Trumpcare. Republicans will own that lock, stock and barrel, and we’ll be judged in the election less than two years away.”
