We all know that the House Republicans are struggling to come up with the votes to defang Obamacare. Because of the filibuster rule in the Senate, they cannot come up with the votes for an outright repeal. However, the budget reconciliation process does allow them to defund the damnable thing. The problem? Now that there votes sudden mean something some “moderate” Republicans have gotten cold feet.

When an a political issue drags on for a long time, the history of the matter soon becomes clouded in mists of confusion. When the cover of darkness is not available, ambitious men and women will make do with what they have.

John 3:19-21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

19 This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”

Depending upon who we believe, the House has voted over 50 time or only 6 times on Obamacare.

Over 50 times? Only 6 times? Does it make a difference? The point is that when President Obama was there to veto anything they passed, House Republicans had no trouble finding the votes they needed to either repeal or defund Obamacare. Now that we have President Trump, someone who wants to sign a bill, Republicans no longer have the votes. Apparently, the “moderates” were never serious about getting rid of Obamacare. Did they lie?

Have you forgotten where you Congressman said he stood on the issue of repeal? Then here are some websites that track votes.

The last website has the most detailed information. Apparently, healthreformvotes.org is one of those well-funded Democrat Liberal feed-for-“free” at the government trough groups. Here (click on “here”) for example is the information they have on my congressman, Rep. Robert Wittman. It starts like this.

healthreformvotes.org likes my senators, unfortunately.

Frankly, even though I disagree with their stance, I appreciate the information healthreformvotes.org. Regardless of which side you are on, we need to hold even “moderate” liars accountable. Any politician who will lie to us will steal from us.

Anyway, please check on the votes of your congressman. If he or she is a “moderate” Republican and now suddenly unwilling to vote to get rid of Obamacare, you may wish to remind him or her of those previous votes and politely request an explanation.




  1. PS I wonder is there is a direct coordination of linking States with the highest State debt to lowest State debt by Political Party Governing? If so, perhaps the red states v blue states should be reversed?

    MIght also be a direct coordination to truthful v lying politicians?

    Just a thought.

    Regards and goodwill blogging.

    1. We have a Republican General Assembly and a Democrat Liberal governor. Our Democrat Liberal governor has fought tooth and nail to expand Medicare under Obamacare. So far the Republicans have resisted. Ultimately, however, it depends upon the people. If we won’t elect honorable men and women and hold them accountable…..

    A heads-up. healthreformvotes.org is a project of healthinsurance.org llc (founded in 1994), which seems to be a for-profit company. From their about page:

    We get compensated by partners who offer quoting services on our site. This allows us to hire bright people, invest in a robust technology platform to deliver this site for you, and continue our mission to make health insurance more understandable and available to more people.

    We aren’t a non-profit, but we have the heart and soul of one. No one in the health insurance industry has any editorial control over our site. The editors of healthinsurance.org continue a long-standing mission to be watchdogs of the health insurance industry. Views expressed are those of our editors, and may not be shared by other sites we link to or partner with.

      That is a pertinent observation. However, it does not mean what you think.

      How is Socialism being foisted on us in United States? Follow the money. Would-be and active crony capitalists look at the Federal treasury, see all that wealth, and get greedy. To finance their operations, Democrat Liberal politicians and RINOs sell access to the Federal treasury. Whatever the reason, growing government suits their designs. The more money politicians either spend or influence the spending of the more power they have.

      Consider. The richest politicians are Democrats, and most are as crooked as sin. How do you think Bill and Hillary Clinton got fabulously wealthy on government salaries?

      Public health corporations and “nonprofits” like the AARP backed Obamacare. In theory, they were going to make big bucks operating government-run health care. In practice they are like the guy in the fairy tale who got greedy and killed the goose that laid the golden eggs.
