GOP Rep. Polls Twitter On Repealing Obamacare And The Result Is Not What She Was Expecting

For six years Republicans in Congress have been champing at the bit to repeal the Affordable Care Act with no luck. Now that they have secured the executive branch, control Congress and will be able to nominate a Justice to the Supreme Court they’re finally in a position to overturn the law that gave millions of uninsured Americans access to affordable health care.

Just one problem: Voters don’t seem too jazzed to see the ACA go.

Tuesday, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) polled her 26,000 Twitter followers asking if Congress should repeal Obamacare.

Here’s the result:

Now, this is not a scientific poll and there’s no reason to believe 84 percent of Blackburn’s 26,000 brainwashed followers don’t want to see the ACA go, but I’m guessing she didn’t expect these results. The GOP congresswoman even had those who were in favor of repealing retweet her poll so their Republican Twitter followers could also vote and she still couldn’t drive up the poll!

The responses to keep the ACA were overwhelming and personal. People tweeted their health stories and explained their circumstances and how the ACA had helped them personally. Others begged for single payer. Many noticed the GOP was so desperate for a plan they were resorting to asking Twitter what they should do.

For many people, repealing the ACA is the difference between life or death:

Many others did not think health care should be for profit and should instead be socialized:

But my fellow cynics know that the GOP will do whatever they want rather than listen to the majority:

Of course, while these anti-repeal types of responses were in the clear majority there was one Republican who wanted to see the ACA go…because she couldn’t be a part of it.

So there you have it. The majority of Americans see the need for affordable health care and do not want to go back to the old system unless the GOP has a more viable plan to replace the ACA with. The greatest trick President Obama pulled on the GOP was making his plan likable enough so the right wing would look like monsters if they tried to take Americans’ affordable health care access away. Now, that’s not to say the ACA doesn’t need improvement — it’s a work in progress — but Republicans do not have anything better. They clearly don’t if they’re asking the Twitterverse for ideas.

Come 2018, the Republican body of Congress needs to be repealed and replaced and luckily we have just the plan to make that happen — vote in the midterms!
