The Plum Line - House GOPer: Leadership had to talk me into voting for repeal Duffy said that the GOP leadership could only get him to vote for the bill repealing health reform by vowing that Repubicans would ultimately put forth their own proposal to replace it: "I don't believe that we should ... just do a straight-up repeal. My position during the campaign and today is, let's reform the reform or repeal and replace. And so, I wasn't gonna vote for it. But I went and spoke to the leadership, and I got a commitment that we were going to bring forward our ideas on this replacement bill. This is interesting on a couple of levels. First, it suggests that some Republicans are aware of the pitfalls of voting just to repeal the bill without offering anything in the way of their own solutions to the health care crisis. Second, it suggests that rank-and-file Republicans are expecting their leadership -- which has promised to roll out an alternative but hasn't set a deadline for it -- to make good on their vow to do just that. And if and when they do, it's going to be interesting to see how the public views the GOP alternative and whether a straight-up comparison of GOP-versus-Dem ideas get people to reconsider their harsh verdict on the Affordable Care Act." His party tricked his dumbass, they never had any plan to replace or reform and still don't, a more seasoned politician would have saw right through that ploy. Focking GOP, they lie and deceive their own.
