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.
