Trump Regret Syndrome: Wait, you were serious about repealing Obamacare?

Believing the lies, ignoring the truth:

Representative Richard Hudson of North Carolina said Friday there is "a lot of angst in our state" over an Obamacare repeal and that he participated in a telephone town-hall with 12,000 people a day earlier.

"My constituents are freaking out about commercials they are seeing on TV about how they are going to lose their health care," he said. Hudson said he tells constituents regarding Republican efforts to devise a replacement plan, "If Obamacare is working for you, we want to hear you say that, too."

And before you even ask, yes, this is a huge flip-flop from Richard Hudson. He's been an adamant opponent of the Affordable Care Act since he's been in the House, and has been wailing about government overreach and how the mandate has been choking businesses. But now that a repeal is a distinct possibility, he's trying to cover his ass with his base and act like an innocent bystander. But the Internet is not so easily fooled:

For what it's worth

Here is my letter to my senators and representative (Holding) regarding the ACA. I don't pretend to think it will do any good, but at least maybe they will know that they are being held accountable for their role. Or maybe the effort will make me feel a little better.

Burr leans on bent think-tank to support his ACA alternative bill

Partisan politics and pseudo-scientific bullshit:

I certainly believe that both the Obama campaign and administration have sought to construct a political narrative that dispenses with inconvenient facts. The campaign narrative was that the U.S. economy was crumbling, broken by Republicans, and in need of being “rebuilt.”

That narrative supported “investments” — progressive-speak for massive federal spending — government takeovers where desired (health care) or needed by unions (autos), and massive deficits.

You're right, I put this diary together backwards, just so you browsers would get a taste of the "expert" that Senator Richard Burr hopes will give his horribly bad legislation a whiff of legitimacy:

Misogynist GOP Healthcare Plan

NC's own, Senator Richard Burr, is working on the health plan Republicans plan to propose as a replacement for Obamacare. One of the things setting the two plans apart is maternity coverage: Obamacare requires it, the Burr plan does not. Evidently, Senator Burr doesn't think health insurance needs to cover maternity care, even though about 54% of registered voters in North Carolina are women.
