One of the reasons Trump won the presidency is because he promised to repeal and replace Obamacare. The program is awful and costs are going through the roof for some Americans.
Now the Democrats, who love to call other people obstructionists, are calling for rallies to protest the repeal of Obamacare.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Dems call for healthcare rallies
Leading congressional Democrats want to hold a series of rallies on Jan. 15 to protest Republicans’ plans to repeal Obamacare and other healthcare reforms.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., wrote a letter to potential organizers on Wednesday calling for the rallies.
“Beginning in January, it is likely that Republican leaders in Congress will follow through on their threats to ram through a budget bill that will severely undermine the healthcare needs of the American people,” the letter said.
It adds that a budget bill likely will include repealing Obamacare, converting Medicare into a voucher program and slashing Medicaid funding.
However, the only plan by the GOP-controlled Congress so far is to repeal Obamacare but leave it intact for a few years while a replacement is crafted. Republicans can easily pass a repeal bill through the Senate through the procedural move reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority vote.
Will the media attack them like they did with the Tea Party when they protested the passage of Obamacare?
Don’t count on it.
