It's Time for the Republicans
to Stand up to the "Republi-can’ts"
AKRON - Today, Tom Zawistowski, President of the TEA Party aligned We the People Convention and Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, called on Republicans in the US House of Representatives and US Senate to stand up to what he calls “Republi-can’ts” on the Repeal and Replacement of Obamacare. Zawistowski said “Why is it that when the Democrats are in charge that they can find ways to do anything they want, but when the Republican’s are in charge all they talk about is what they "can’t" do? By some apparent D.C. magic, the Democrats were able to implement ALL of Obamacare using ONE “budget reconciliation” bill but the “Repuli-can’ts” claim it is impossible to repeal and replace the same bill using the same one step process! Why? Well because they are “Republi-can’ts”, or to be honest, which they are not, because K-Street and US Camber doesn’t want them to repeal and replace all of Obamacare.”
Zawistowski continued, “Every citizen who voted for President Trump should call their Congressman, and Senator, and the White House TODAY and demand that they keep their promise to repeal and replace ALL of Obamacare. While we trust President Trump, we have learned long ago that we cannot trust the career political class in Washington, DC. and therefore we must hold them accountable. Isn’t it interesting that the things that will most benefit families and the working class - selling insurance over state lines, repeal of the Insurance Mandate which is the main reason our premiums and deductibles are so high, etc. - those thing “can’t” be in a “budget reconciliation” bill according to the “Republi-can’ts” - even though they were in the Democrat’s bill. They say, "You working stiffs are going to have to give us even more power, 60 votes in the Senate to get what you want, and if that never happens, to bad for you.
Zawistowski concluded, “So, here is a memo to the “Republi-can’ts” from the grassroots that gave you the House, and the Senate and the White House and the Supreme Court - you are actually in charge and you “can” do any damn thing you need to do! REAL Republican’s need to listen to what Trump said in his Nashville speech - “It doesn’t matter what you do, the Democrats will not vote for it” - and the media is going to attack you FOREVER for doing it. So, ignore them! They didn’t vote for you and they NEVER will. Republican’s must keep your word to the people who did vote for you and do not pass ANY bill that does not reduce the cost of insurance and health care for everyday Americans. Regardless of what you “meant” by repeal and replacing Obamacare, to Joe Blow and his family, if they can’t afford insurance and health care then you didn’t keep your promise and they will vote you out in 2018! Don’t be a “Republi-can’t" like Paul Ryan, be a proud Republican like Donald Trump! Do it NOW, do it ALL, and show that you know how to lead and you are willing and able to do what it takes to win. I and millions of Republicans who voted for Trump will be calling your offices today to make sure that you understand the message we sent in the 2016 election."
