GOP must destroy all of Obamacare

The Republican controlled Congress is about to make a huge mistake.

Every Republican elected to the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives have made the people of the United States a solemn promise. The promise that was made was “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act *(Obamacare)” would be repealed intact.

The current bill does not repeal Obamacare intact as promised. In fact, “The American Health Care Act (Trump-Ryancare)” is Obamacare with a new title, new clothes and most of all a different group of supporters: Republicans instead of Democrats, “you can put lipstick on a pig BUT it is still a pig.”

To keep the promise made to the citizens at every turn since Obamacare was passed it is imperative that Obamacare be repealed intact by one bill before any replacement is started or added. A replacement bill or part of a replacement bill can be done at the same time that Obamacare is repealed intact.

Without repealing Obamacare intact many parts of the Obamacare left in place will damage any attempt to replace parts of Obamacare through amendment. The parts left in place will continue to further damage our health care system and any attempted health care insurance replacement.

The only option is a full repeal and full replacement of Obamacare as promised.
