Even before the GOP could try, the Republicans failed twice this week to force the repeal of Obamacare and to pass the Trump-backed Better Care Reconciliation Act. The Washington Post reported on Thursday that after a scolding from President Donald Trump on Wednesday at a White House lunch with Republican senators, the party plans to give the bill another push next week,

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to hold another vote next week, but the newspaper said that it would likely fail, similar to the first two attempts unless GOP senators can agree on how to treat Medicaid spending. Because of the pressure from Trump to repeal Obamacare at all cost, The republicans will apparently not listen to reason or the sentiments of Americans.

Fix Obamacare instead

Instead of repealing the Affordable Care Act, 65 percent of New Yorkers favor fixing Obamacare, according to a Siena College survey. Only 32 percent want to repeal and replace the ACA, The New York Daily News reported. Those who favor fixing Obamacare, or 83 percent of the survey respondents, are Democrats, while 66 percent of those who seek the repeal and replacement of the ACA are GOP members.

The trend showed that the stand of New Yorkers on health coverage has a lot to do with political party affiliation. It is not true, however, in other states. Few GOP members, or only 27 percent, support the BRCA that the Senate insists on passing, while 47 percent want the Senate to pass instead of a bipartisan health care bill.

Vengeance is mine, say Conservatives

The four GOP senators who tweeted they would not support the repeal of Obamacare are now the target of a hate campaign among Conservatives who have been seeking to bring down the ACA the past seven years.

According to The Washington Post, FreedomWorks, a Conservative group, will prepare a “Freedom Traitor Award” which would come with a bust of Benedict Arnold when it will be delivered to the office of senators who would oppose the efforts to push another ACA repeal to try next week.

The images of Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, and Ohio Sen. Rob Portman are featured in the newly launched website of the Tea Party Patriots and Club for Growth. Titled “Obamacare Repeal Traitors,” the portal listed the quotes from the three senators against the ACA and the phone numbers to their offices. It would be difficult to pressure the three senators because they are not up for reelection in 2018.
