Kobach: Republicans Who Voted Against Obamacare Repeal Showed Their True Colors

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach told Breitbart News Daily on Thursday that he was troubled by Wednesday’s Obamacare vote, in which six senators who supported repeal under President Barack Obama changed their minds and voted to preserve the program.

“As you know, it only got 45 votes, but it should have had at least 51 because there were six Republican senators who voted for the clean repeal in 2015 when they knew it wasn’t going to have the president’s signature, so it wasn’t going to become law,” he told SiriusXM host Alex Marlow.

“So they took a show vote in 2015 to fool their constituents into thinking that yes, they, too, opposed Obamacare enough to just get rid of it, regardless of what replaces it. Now, when the vote happens in a way that would be signed by the president, those six Republicans show their true colors and don’t vote to repeal Obamacare,” said Kobach.

“That galls me because politicians who do one thing to create a false impression for their own constituents, and then when the truth comes out, they vote the opposite way, I just think that is a perfect example of the culture of corruption,” he charged.

So many Republican votes over the years to repeal Obamacare when there was no chance of it happening. Now that a Republican president is in place to actually sign the repeal it won't happen. Maybe congress is slowly realizing that most Americans actually do support free healthcare. They just didn't like it when it was named for Obama.

Usually McCain is not as blatant in showing his true colors as a chameleon. But this vote proved it and he no longer has to be sneaky and do his crooked ways as a democrat disguising himself as a republican. Glad he never became President but sorry for Palin getting screwed over.

R's and D's are both on the same side; the side that fills their pockets with cash. That's how Maxine lives in a 4.3M mansion now.

Trump won't fill their pockets with anything but a paycheck for doing their jobs and they can't live on that!

America, it's time to either vote all these idiots out and only vote for people who fund their own campaigns and are not owned by others. It almost wouldn't matter what their platform is, as long as they have a copy of our Constitution and are willing to follow it.

If that can't happen, the other choice is going to hurt, but has to happen to save the USA.

Commit a patriotic act: vote all incumbents out of office! They have a big salary, wonderful perks, healthcare that you will never have and a pension plan that will pay them royally. Vote them out!
