“I want to congratulate the Freedom Caucus, the true constitutional conservatives, the true patriots, for stopping this disastrous bill from passing,” Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin said Friday evening on the radio.
The American Health Care Act, or RINOcare, was defeated today as Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc. pulled the bill from the floor of the House of Representatives before it could go up for a vote. The Obamacare repeal-in-name-only bill didn’t have enough votes to pass, largely because of the Freedom Caucus’ refusal to break their promise to the American people.
The bill ultimately failed, Levin explained, because too many Republicans do not want to repeal Obamacare and conservatives won’t have it.
“The problem is, ladies and gentlemen, a big part of the Republican party is progressive. That is, they are utopian statists,” Levin said.
“This bill was written by cowards. Cowards who were afraid that if they dared to touch what Obama had built in any significant way, that they’d lose at the ballot box.”
