Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said this week that Republicans would push to repeal ObamaCare if they win back the House and President Trump is reelected in 2020.

“If we can get the House back and keep our majority in the Senate, and President Trump wins reelection, I can promise you not only are we going to repeal ObamaCare, we’re going to do it in a smart way where South Carolina will be the biggest winner,” Graham said in an interview with a South Carolina radio station.

“We’ve got to remind people that we’re not for ObamaCare.”

Graham’s repeal bill, introduced in 2017, would eliminate major sections of ObamaCare, including subsidies that help people buy insurance and the Medicaid expansion that covers low-income adults in 36 states and Washington, D.C.

The bill would essentially shift money from states like California that expanded Medicaid to states that didn’t, like South Carolina. Such a move could force some states to cut health care services and reduce eligibility.

“If we could get the money back to the states, Democratic policies would be tested against our policies,” Graham said.

“This scares the hell out of the Democrats. This is what 2020 is about.”

Well, he’s right. That definitely scares the hell out of us. 

Keep in mind that the Republicans have not really put forth any plan for comprehensive medical coverage for Americans.

Their entire focus has been to defeat Obamacare with nothing in place to replace it, thereby leaving people at the mercy of the insurance companies. 

To my mine this is the single best argument for Demcrats to not only retain control of the House but to also take over the Senate. 

And look, it came from Lindsey Graham.

    Lindsey Graham says, “IF” Trump wins re-election, “IF” the Republicans win back the House, and “IF” they keep the majority in the Senate, they will repeal Obamacare? The thought that all 3 of these things may happen, gives me an ulcer.

    ““I’ll make it my mission to torture you so much that you end up killing yourself,” reads a text message from a phone number belonging to notorious smear merchant Jacob Wohl.”

    Wohl is best known for his blundering, often comical attempts at political trickery, including failed schemes to concoct bogus sexual-assault allegations against former Special Counsel Robert Mueller and presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg. But text messages from a phone number belonging to Wohl suggest that the 21-year-old hoaxer has branched out into making death threats on behalf of his political allies, telling one woman he would
    “torture you so much that you end up killing yourself.”

    Obamacare is ten years old. Republicans had the majority for most of that time but when they got really close to repealing Obamacare the people kicked the GOP out of the house. Was Miss Lindsey hiding behind his fan at the time?

    Well, I think that will pretty much assure the Democrats will keep their majority. Probably expand it considering how many Republican reps aren’t running for re-election.
