Megyn Kelly cornered Rep. Kevin McCarthy who is part of the House’s current leadership on whether or not the House will push for repeal of Obamacare now that Republicans have the Senate. In short, McCarthy says no:
This is the problem with the current Republican leadership. They don’t know how to fight Democrats. They are too worried about the media to actually fight for something that might seem undoable.
The Weekly Standard reported at the beginning of October that 60% of Americans are in favor of repealing Obamacare. That’s a huge majority.
If I were in Republican leadership I would try and make it as politically toxic as possible for House and Senate members to vote against repealing Obamacare. And this shouldn’t be too hard now that the worst parts of Obamacare are going to be implemented since the midterms are over. Republicans should force Democrats to cross the aisle and create a veto-proof majority to repeal Obamacare.
It may take some time and we may not get there before 2016. But if we want this monstrosity repealed we are going to have to fight to make it happen.
