Do you remember when Obamacare was passed without a single Republican vote? Me too. As the website failed, premiums skyrocketed, deductibles went inexorably higher, fewer and fewer insurance companies participated, and Americans paid an extra $900 billion in taxes Republicans all could say that the Democrat Party owned Obamacare lock, stock, and barrel.
That’s no longer true. Thirty odd Republicans just voted for Obamacare and their thirty odd votes made Obamacare THE LAW OF THE LAND! Obamacare would be gone except for their actions. This was driven by the Freedom Caucus who kept moving the goal posts and refusing to compromise.
So who owns Obamacare? The “better-than-all-other-Republicans” in the FREEDOM CAUCUS! They took their ball and went home, because the rest of the Republicans elected to Congress “weren’t conservative enough.”
