Republicans Have Wasted at Least $50 Million Voting to Repeal Obamacare
In July, 2012, just after Republicans voted — for the 33rd time — to repeal Obamacare, CBS reported that Republicans spent roughly $50 million of our tax dollars and two full work weeks on those votes knowing full well there was no way Obama was going to sign a bill voiding his own legislation.
Again, that was almost two years ago. Since then, the GOP has voted an additional 14 times for repeal, underscoring the hypocrisy of their screams about reducing the deficit and working to create jobs, neither of which they’re doing.
When I see polls and read articles about how the Republicans have a good shot at retaining control of the House and of taking the Senate in the fall, I wonder what in the hell people are thinking.
