  1. I have no idea what the GOP leadership is thinking. Are they really believing they can defy the electorate to deliver a crap sandwich by NOT repealing the ACA or not funding the border wall?

    Obviously, they didn’t learn or forgot the lesson of 2014 when the GOP majority leader Eric Cantor lost his seat in Virginia’s 7th District to a Tea Party supporter David Brat.

    The GOP came to power on 2 main issues on top of the economy. Repeal of Obamacare and build the border wall. I’m glad they did the other stuff repealing Obama’s exec orders but they were sent there to deliver results not posture like Democrats. The GOP is flirting with suicide as a political party IF they fail to deliver on these two issues. I would say the time table is by December 2017 because after that it’s the 2018 election cycle where the GOP leadership will be targeted to be primaried.

    There is zero reason they can’t repeal the ACA and set the date for it’s wind up as December 31st, 2017. At that point they would have a firm deadline to prepare and adequate replacement and transition to a rational free market system.

    We need to continue to encourage everyone not on an employer plan to go with the Healthcare Sharing Plans like Medishare. This is the individual’s stab in the heart of ObamaCare that directly contributes to the ACA deathspiral while protecting themselves.
