    McMorris Rodgers says ACA likely to stay

    U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said it’s unlikely the Affordable Care Act will be repealed.
    “We need to look at reforming the exchanges,” the Eastern Washington Republican said Thursday.
    The five-term congresswoman and chair of the House Republican Conference kicked off her re-election campaign this week with visits to Walla Walla, Colville and Spokane. She faces Democratic challenger Joe Pakootas.

    McMorris Rodgers has been part of the Republican leadership in the House that has voted multiple times to repeal parts or all of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. GOP members have said the law is unworkable, will increase costs for some and force others into inadequate coverage or plans they don’t want.
    McMorris Rodgers continued those criticisms Thursday, but said the framework established by the law likely will persist and reforms should take place within its structure.

    Hope this moron loses her seat.

    I don't care if a Demokrat takes it, but the Tea Part should have her ass in their crosshairs, and any other idiot with an R by their name acting like an idiot Demokrat.

    And in the leadership of the party... (projectile puke icon)... Boehner need be challenged, this moron need be challenged, and any other gutless Rino.

    The OP has decided that a 5 term congresswoman, who regularly gets positive ratings from conservative groups, is a RINO because she's being far more realistic than most GOP members on this....particular... issue...

    She's saying exactly what a lot of the people who feared the bill in the first place said. Remember?

    It is heavily unlikely it will be repealed. Reforms are much more likely for conservatives critical of the legislation.

    Remember all of the liberals somehow thinking that NCLB would be removed? They were idiots in the mid-2000s, they remain idiots now. Reform is the option you have once it takes hold.

    What was done can be undone. It takes will. Balls. Leadership of another type than what this moron offers.

    She and others like her should be targeted for removal.

    I wish folks could live in Europe for a few years to experience what they're in for. It's not pretty, but hey... class warfare and giving away goodies is attractive to parasites. They think they are entitled to other people's labor. It's a demented mentality, disgusting, but obviously popular for a large section of an ignorant or parasitic electorate.

    So the woman votes to repeal the law on dozens of occasions, levies sharp critiques against it in the same venue, yet is a liberal because she recognizes the likelihood of repeal is slim to none? Just a bizarre interpretation and lack of political savvy.

    `
    Considering the plethora manufactured outrages, asinine opinions and gross prevarications of facts coming from the GOP, Cathy McMorris Rodgers's remark is almost like a breath of fresh air.
