A disappointed Republican donor in Virginia has filed a lawsuit against the national and state Republican Parties for failing to repeal ObamaCare, according to The Hill. The retired attorney, Bob Heghmann, filed the suit in U.S. District Court on Thursday, alleging that the GOP raised millions of dollars in donations despite having knowledge that the party would not be able to repeal ObamaCare. In the suit, he claimed the Republican Party “has been engaged in a pattern of racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats.” Keep Reading

Pence: “The President And I Really Like Sen. Rand Paul … A Man Of Principle And Conviction”

Vice President Mike Pence showered praise on Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) during a roundtable event with business leaders on Thursday in Lexington, Kentucky. “Now let me say from my heart, the President and I really like Senator Rand Paul,” Pence said. “I’ve known him for a lot of years. He’s a man of principle and conviction. Senator Rand Paul is a great conservative and a great legislator, and he does Kentucky proud.” “The President and I believe when the time comes, Senator Mitch McConnell and Senator Rand Paul will do the right thing together, and we will pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare and end the Obamacare nightmare once and for all.” Pence’s laudatory remarks are no doubt part of a charm offensive by the administration ahead of next week’s vote on a major health care reform bill known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), the Senate’s version of the House’s American Health Care Act (AHCA).

Hands Off My Healthcare: Opposition To Obamacare, Explained.

Unless you’re Bill Belichick, you may have heard a thing or two about the impending repeal of The Affordable Care Act on Snapface or Instachat. Actually, you’ve probably heard quite a lot. From Esquire stating 30 million people lost their healthcare overnight, to countless pithy tweets and Facebook quotes about the evils of the Republicans for wanting to deny coverage to the American people. The problem is that this isn’t true. The Affordable Care Act has NOT been repealed. Nor have any provisions been dismantled. The infamous late-night vote you surely read about was to authorize congress to modify Obamacare’s funding down the line – setting the path for a repeal.
