Conservative Review by Robert Eno
There has been a concerted effort from the establishment, and it would appear now even President Donald Trump, to pin the RINOcare bill failure on the Freedom Caucus and spin the narrative that conservatives are now responsible for Obamacare.
But it is not the Freedom Caucus that is to blame for the failure to repeal Obamacare, it is Paul Ryan and the bait-and-switch caucus he leads. Paul Ryan campaigned to fully repeal Obamacare, but when it came time to put up a bill, it ended up being a giveaway to the insurance industry that tried to fix Obamacare, rather than repeal.
Ryan’s bait-and-switch caucus is now leading the attack on conservatives who thought Ryan meant what he said. But what has happened is that, once again, leadership and the rest of the bait-and-switch caucus has proven that they didn’t really mean what they said during the last seven years of campaigning.
