Default GOP Leaders Endorse Bill To Extend Obamacare Subsidies To 2017

GOP before the last elections promised to stop obama and end obamacare, after the elections, not so much.

I have said for a couple of years now that you can not trust the republican party to keep their word, they are no better than the dems, and I will refuse to vote for any of them in the future.

The Senate’s top five Republican leaders have cosponsored legislation to extend until 2017 the Obamacare insurance subsidies that may be struck down by the Supreme Court this summer.
The legislation, offered by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), one of the most politically vulnerable Senate incumbents in 2016, would maintain the federal subsidies at stake in King v. Burwell through the end of August 2017.
The bill was unveiled this week with 29 other cosponsors, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his four top deputies, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), John Thune (R-SD), John Barrasso (R-WY) and Roy Blunt (R-MO). Another cosponsor is Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS), the chairman of the conference’s electoral arm.
Such a move would seek to protect the GOP from political peril in the 2016 elections when Democrats would try to blame the party for stripping subsidies — and maybe insurance coverage — from millions of Americans in three dozen states. A defeat for the Obama administration in a King ruling would likely create havoc across insurance markets and pose a huge problem for Republicans, many of whom have been pushing the Supreme Court to nix the subsidies.
“This bill is a first step toward reversing the damage that Obamacare has inflicted on the American health care system,” Johnson said.
He recently explained the rationale for the legislation, warning that Democrats would swarm the GOP with attacks and horror stories about “individuals that have benefited from Obamacare” and lost their coverage.
Democrats would probably demand a fix to make the subsidies permanently available if they go down. But they would be hard-pressed to vote down a bill to temporarily extend them if Republicans were to bring it up.

Fuck these god dmaned republicans.

What we tolerate today our children will embrace tomorrow

Our country is lost.

Once 50% of the voting populace knows that voting one direction keeps the public tit flowing, the government is lost. As poor of a candidate as Romney was, he did know this and pointed it out. Then he was promptly crucified for pointing out the 800# liberal in the room...

I'd rather die trying to live,
than live trying not to die.
