Republicans Were Just Told To Stop Talking About Healthcare Repeal Because It’s Political Suicide (DETAILS)

Remember when Republicans were told to stop talking about rape because they were repeatedly sticking their foot in their mouths? Well, now they are being told to stop talking about their attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Ever since Republicans giddily started preparing to repeal the landmark healthcare law, they faced a sea of angry constituents at town hall events across the country. As the GOP dug in their heels to strip healthcare from millions of Americans, their own voting base began to realize that their own healthcare was threatened as well and that the law they referred to as Obamacare wasn’t so bad after all.

In fact, many realize that the law saved their lives and they don’t want Republicans to repeal it and put their lives back in jeopardy.

But Republicans shoved their bill through the House without even reading it and getting the CBO to score it. The bill lets states opt out of requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions, which have now been defined as including sexual assault, pregnancy, cancer, acne, asthma, diabetes, sleep apnea, Alzheimer’s disease, and a whole host of other conditions and medical problems, a list of which you can find here.

This pretty much would allow insurance companies to discriminate against millions of Americans, conservatives included.

The bill also slashed $880 billion from Medicaid, which covers millions of low-income Americans, in order to fund a tax gift for the wealthy. Again, millions of Americans, including conservatives in red states, got healthcare because the Affordable Care Act expanded Medicaid.

Understandably, most Americans are pissed at Republicans, especially after House Republicans celebrated taking healthcare from people by throwing a beer party on Capitol Hill and smiling and laughing about it at the White House Rose Garden while Donald Trump spiked the football.

And Americans have been flocking to town halls ever since to shame Republicans for their actions. Many Republicans have even been too cowardly to even attend their own town halls to face the music.

Those who have shown up have only angered their constituents even more by lying about what’s in the bill and making any lame excuse they can think of to justify stripping healthcare from millions.

That’s why a conservative consulting firm in now telling Republicans to stop talking about repealing the Affordable Care Act.

According to Raw Story,

In a memo issued this week by conservative firm WPA Intelligence, lawmakers were cautioned to avoid using the term “full repeal” because it is highly unpopular.

So, it appears that Republicans may now go to their constituents and claim that their bill is only a partial repeal even though it is, in fact, a full repeal.

Make no mistake, this consulting firm knows that Republicans are committing political suicide. That’s why they warned them to stop talking so much about the healthcare repeal.

But the damage has already been done and will get even worse if Republicans send the bill to Trump for his signature.

The American people, including conservative voters, now know that Republicans were full of shit when they insisted that a full repeal was the only way to fix the Affordable Care Act. The fact is that these problems can be easily fixed if Republicans are willing to work with Democrats. Instead of admitting they were wrong, Republicans doubled down and now they get to experience the consequences in 2018 when a Democratic wave could very well sweep them out of power in Congress.
