RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski Sides with Democrats, GOP Attempt at Repealing Obamacare a Waste of Time
Once RINO, always a RINO …
What a shock RINO Alaskan US Senator echos the Democrat party that the Senate does not have the votes to repeal Obamacare. As reported in The Hill, Murkowski ”mimicked a Democratic argument against GOP repeal efforts”; Democrats say that Republicans have gone back on their calls to focus on jobs by holding a health care vote as their first major action of the 112th Congress.
Murkowski claims she would vote for the repeal of Obamacare, yet she calls it a waste of time? A note to Senator Murkowski, unlike your election in the 49th state, the rest of America elected Republicans who promised to do the will of the people and dismantle Obamacare.
Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski on Thursday cast doubt on the manner in which Republicans have attempted to repeal the healthcare law.
Murkowski (Alaska) said that she would vote to repeal the law if a vote was held in the Senate, but she said the enough votes do not exist in the upper chamber to strike the law. As a result, Republicans should focus on other issues such as unemployment, spending and the federal debt and deficit, she said.
The Alaska senator — who defeated Tea Party Republican Joe Miller as a write-in candidate in November — mimicked a Democratic argument against GOP repeal efforts; Democrats say that Republicans have gone back on their calls to focus on jobs by holding a healthcare vote as their first major action of the 112th Congress.
But GOP leaders, such as House Speaker John Boehner (Ohio), have said that the repeal vote was a crucial to uphold the Republicans’ “Pledge to America” document and is a first step toward repeal, which Murkowski said she favors.
Unbelievable, just like a typical RINO. As stated by Weasel Zippers, thank you so much Alaska for electing this Republican disgrace.
