Steve Scalise: Republicans were never going to repeal Obamacare
ConservativeReview by Chris Pandolpho
Repealing the whole of Obamacare in the American Health Care Act was never an option, according to House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La.
Virtually every Republican has run on a full repeal of Obamacare since 2010 — not the half-assed repeal that is the American Health Care Act. And yet …
"There was never a day where our conference was willing to leave people out in the cold," Scalise told The Washington Examiner Wednesday. "There were some people who wanted to get rid of the protections for pre-existing conditions," he explained, probably referring to the actual conservatives in the House. "We weren't going to go there. Our conference wasn't going to go there."
