Anil Mathai, the Chair of the Adams County Republican Party, has been voicing his frustration and anger over the failure of Republicans to kill Obamacare.
In a strident Facebook post this week, Mathai wrote:
Mathai: Our continued failure [to repeal Obamacare] will end the Republican Party via huge losses in 2017 and 2018. We were trusted and elected to lead our nation successfully.
Written before the GOP repeal effort went down in flames, Mathai’s post stated:
Mathai: May the Republican Party immediately repeal Obamacare and return our nation to complete freedom and away from the tyranny that the Democrat communist party has enacted over the last eight years!
Mathai doesn’t hold back when speaking his mind, both about his fellow Republicans and about issues he cares about.
There may be no one more angry at the Republican failure to replace Obamacare than Kelly Couey, who appeared in an I-Am-Created-Equal video prior to the 2014 election criticizing Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet for his support of Obamacare.
Couey wrote on Facebook after the vote: “Did any of these assholes who voted against repeal read the Constitution? The Ten Commandments? Sorry John McCain, the cancer in your head is not as bad as the poison in your corporate bought out black heart.” [CTR emphasis]
Couey’s son has autism, and he and his wife have struggled with healthcare costs. In his ad, which attacks Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet’s support for Obamcare, Couey complains about the cost of insurance under Obamacare. But all GOP bills to replace Obamacare would have resulted in higher premiums than what’s projected under current law.
