The Republicans in the Senate, as a whole, did what was best for the nation. They voted to start Obamacare repeal talks. However, there were three notable traitors who stuck with their Democratic best friends and went against the will of the people.
Two female Republican lawmakers, Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, also voted against the bill as well as Sen. John McCain who shocked everyone with his vote!
We all know that they were on the Dems payroll and tried to protect the disaster known as Obamacare!
With the failure by Republicans in Congress to repeal Obamacare this year, President Trump is taking matters into his own hands, signing an executive order Thursday that targets the health care law.
But it seems that Barack Obama comes back to save his disaster!
Former President Obama released a video urging people to sign up for ObamaCare as a new enrollment period — the first under a new president — begins on Wednesday.
In the video, Obama said today is the first day to “get covered for 2018.”
“You can shop for a health insurance plan that’s right for you and your family,” Obama said. “It only takes a few minutes and the vast majority of people qualify for financial assistance.”

From The Hill:
Obama said eight in 10 people this year can find plans for $75 a month or less.
“That’s cheaper than a lot of cell phone plans. And thanks to the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies can no longer charge you more just for being a woman, or for having a pre-existing condition,” he said.
“That’s a good thing. It means they have to compete for your business.”
Obama called for people to spread the word that it’s time to sign up for health coverage.
“Because this country works best when we look our for one another,” he said.
Open enrollment for ObamaCare begins Wednesday. The enrollment period is only half as long as it was during the Obama administration, ending Dec. 15. This year, more counties will also only have one ObamaCare insurer offering plans, so the insurance options could be limited in those counties.
President Trump has talked of allowing ObamaCare to “implode” since GOP efforts to repeal the law have failed in Congress. He has reduced budgets to advertise the enrollment period, and ended payments to insurers intended to help subsidize costs for getting lower-income people on the exchanges.
Not one Republican lawmaker supported Obamacare. Now American taxpayers are suffocating under outrageous costs and extremely high deductibles.
Trump supporters have had enough and annihilated Obama…
Who can afford this junk insurance rates were affordable before this mess!!
