Anger Still Simmering For GOP

Even with the GOP landslide on Nov 2, the mood of the country is still one of skeptic and distrust. That was pretty evident this afternoon when a article in The Hill proclaimed that Rep. Cantor wanted to keep certain parts of the current Health Care Law. This, of course, went completely against what the Republican have been saying, to quote Rep. Mike Pence..“to repeal the health care law lock, stock and barrel”

The Hill later corrected the article:

Editor’s note: This article was changed at 1:57 p.m.. The Hill incorrectly reported in the initial version that Cantor wants to keep certain provisions of the healthcare law intact. The article was revised to emphasize that Cantor and House Republicans are pursuing a full repeal of healthcare reform while addressing issues in the law, such as pre-existing conditions and allowing young people to stay on their parents’ insurance plan, in their replacement bill. Both provisions are in current law, but Republicans would deal with them differently than Democrats did in the bill that passed earlier this year.

In the meantime, even Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the report and Doc Thompson from WRVA started the “pile on Cantor” on his facebook. The feeding frenzy continued with a series of articles like this and this. Laura Alcorn, Co-Founder of Richmond Patriots made this comment on the Virginia 7th Watch Dog Group:

I have to admit that I had a hissy when I heard it from Rush who read it from The Hill that Cantor would not repeal Obamacare…… I had to wait until tonight to write my nasty email to Cantor and his staff. Good thing, because now we know that The Hill had to [correct] their first blog. In the meantime, I have received 5 or 6 emails from different groups that sound something like this:

We already know that repealing the national healthcare plan is needed, but the Republican solution to the problem is not good enough. Today, in The American Spectator, it was noted that Majority Leader-elect Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) has a Republican plan that could replace the current Obama plan, but it is not aggressive enough nor is it is a free-market alternative to what has already been put in place by the Democrats.

Contact Congressman Cantor and let him know that we need a better solution!

In fairness, the GOP deserves some of the pile on that this error caused. But at the same time we must NOT be distracted from our real problem, which is President Obama and the progressive liberals. The republican Health Care Bill has been posted on line since June 2009. As far as, I know this will be the bill that will be the republican alternative to Obama care.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
