In their latest salvo against President Donald Trump and conservative Americans, the neoconservative GOP leadership has unveiled its plan to repeal and replace Obamacare with a lighter, yet equally ineffectual and inefficient alternative that Senator Rand Paul has referred to as “Obamacare Lite”:
“This is Obamacare lite,” Paul said. “It will not pass. Conservatives aren’t going to take it. Premiums and prices will continue to spiral out of control.”
Paul said he has spoken with President Donald Trump on the issue, and that he is open for negotiations.
Last week, Paul raised concern when he tweeted that the Obamacare legislation was being kept under “lock and key” in a “secure location.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan downplayed Paul, calling his actions a “publicity stunt.”
“I like Rand, but I think he’s looking for a publicity stunt here,” Ryan said. “The things he described are just not accurate.”
From the moment President Trump entered the White House, GOP leaders have done nothing but attempt to sabotage his presidency, effective acting as a fifth column in partnership with their neoliberal drinking buddies in the Democratic Party. Having since forced General Michael Flynn to resign, replacing him with one of their own, Lt. General H. R. McMaster, as well as bringing in notorious warmonger and bona fide lunatic John Bolton as a shadow adviser against Steve Bannon, the neoconservative elites of the GOP are sending a message to Americans that the life-right dichotomy has always been an deliberate illusion intended to deceive and defraud the electorate, and that they will stop at nothing to ensure the status quo is never jeopardized.
This traitorous betrayal seems intended to ensure that this presidency last only term and encourage voters to choose the Democratic candidate at the next elections, who will undoubtedly be status quo through and through.
