According to the official website of the House GOP, the 2010 pledge to “repeal and replace” Obamacare was fulfilled on January 19, 2011. “President Obama’s Job Destroying Health Care Law was repealed by the House of Representatives,” the website boasts, next to a giant green check mark that indicates the job is done.
Surely the GOP does not think voters are stupid enough to understand the difference between voting to repeal Obamacare and actually repealing it? Surely it would have been better to explain that the Democrats are the reason that pledge had not been fulfilled? Is it any wonder that conservatives distrust Republican leadership?
