Obamacare repeal is NOT in the bag. If we want repeal, we’re going to have to fight for it. Pro-Obamacare forces are pulling out all the stops to save the ACA. They’re energized. They sense disarray on our side and they’re making a lot of noise. All of a sudden, I’m seeing articles everywhere about how great Obamacare is, and how most Americans don’t want it repealed. Chuck Schumer said Republicans would “rue the day” they tried to abolish Obamacare. President Obama spoke on a Facebook Live video urging people to sign up for Obamacare plans despite Republican opposition to the law. The IRS sent out letters to millions of individual mandate payers telling them what a great deal Obamacare is. I just got mine yesterday. I put it next to my Edsel.
Obamacare supporters are saying the most ridiculous things to try to save this law. I saw a number of tweets along the lines that millions of people would die without Medicaid expansion. Governor Terry McAuliffe said the same thing here in Virginia last winter. He said people would be dying in the streets. Virginia’s legislature still refused to expand Medicaid and, guess what? No dead bodies in the streets. How is that possible? So, when you hear people say the end of Medicaid expansion will kill millions of people, just ask them, WHERE ARE THE DEAD BODIES in the states that refused expansion.
I’m also seeing letters to the editor extolling the virtues of Obamacare. It all smells orchestrated to me, and part of the Left’s larger campaign to destroy Donald Trump’s presidency before it even begins.
I told you last week the Truth Squad would continue to bring you Obamacare news so you have fresh ammunition to keep up the fight. This week, I focused on all the good news about what repeal would mean for people. Repeal of Obamacare’s 20 taxes would be the biggest tax cut of the year. Unsubsidized people who are getting slammed by premium increases will get relief. Restaurants are having a very hard time meeting Obamacare’s requirements and are looking forward to repeal. Medicaid expansion is blowing big holes in state budgets. States are complaining that their schools are getting hit as a result. All these problems go away after Obamacare is repealed. Everybody would have more choices and more freedom once we get rid of this dreadful law. I collected more stories on the same theme, and will include all the links in the wrap-up.
2.5 million say no to Obamacare subsidies, buy off-exchange plans; ‘people want choice’
“Trump should propose amnesty — for unpaid ObamaCare penalties”
“Obamacare Repeal Will Be Biggest Tax Cut of New Year” (good riddance to 20 different taxes)
Americans paying more for less under ACA breathe a sigh of relief, looking forward to something better

Full Medicaid expansion would have cost Utah taxpayers at least $90 million to start.
Obama said Healthcare.gov would be like Travelocity, but didn’t mention there would only be 1 plane & tickets would go up 116%/yr

The next Secretary of Health and Human Services will end Medicaid expansion for millions of low income Americans and replace it with death.
Gov. McAuliffe said people would drop dead in the streets w/o Medicaid expansion in Va. WHERE ARE THE BODIES?
