245-189. A shellacking!

There was nothing bullish about the three Democrats who voted WITH Republicans to repeal Obamacare ... In fact, only the vote AGAINST the bill was BIPARTISAN!

The fact is that a majority of Americans don't want faceless bureaucrats to step between doctors and patients. Obamacare will destroy the best healthcare system in the world.

This fundamentally flawed bill was about coverage, not bending health care costs down. If Democrats were serious about helping ALL Americans (instead of their base constituents), they would have applied free market principles to the bill in order to lower costs: namely, they would have used tort reform to reduce medical malpractice lawsuits and allowed for purchasing insurance across state lines.

But they didn't, and until the Democrats fix the mess they've created, the country will sadly remain divided ...
